Join us at the NYC BigApps Rackspace Pitch & Projects Meetup at Harvest to learn about telling stories, purpose driven development, and nailing your pitches and projects pages. Hear the tricks of the trade for the best ways to design an app with a story, pitch your ideas, and design compelling project pages (that wow BigApps judges and potential collaborators).
The evening will be opened by Cameron Koczon, one of the founding brains behind Fictive Kin, TeuxDeux, the wildly popular Brooklyn Beta Conference, the Summer Camp incubator in Brooklyn, and a new project he will be telling you about at this meetup that is, fittingly, about storytelling and purpose.
Next up, Nathan Heleine, co-founder of Crush + Lovely, head of C+L's digital cinema studio, Motion, and co-creator of Fifty People One Question, will share his thoughts on storytelling and product promotion via video content. He'll also discuss ways in which narrative can inform product development and company culture.
Following Nathan, Dong-Ping Wong (Founder, Family) and Archie Lee Coates IV (Founder, PlayLab) will discuss the design of and story behind +Pool, a floating pool in New York's East River and a massive Kickstarter success that they created with Jeffrey Franklin. Dong-Ping has designed a 600-unit, energy-producing housing block in Dallas, a contemporary art museum in Finland, and other design feats. Archi has opened a community-run pie shop called PieLab; founded Beginnings, a storefront gallery in Brooklyn, and was a contributing Art Director for Drama Arts Magazine.
Following our talks and pitch workshop, we'll open up the space for networking and mingling, so you can build out your NYC BigApps dream team or even find your future co-founders!
Snacks and refreshments will be served at 6:30pm before the sessions begin.
