This Week’s Affairs From Wakefield
Events for Aug. 27 – Sep. 2
Alright September, let’s do this. Bringing us home to close out the month is a big-time state of the union chat on design in startups and a pitch deadline for lady founders.
August 30: State of the Startup Industry: Design
What do you get when you mix beer, wine, and the founders of Hard Candy Shell and Behance breaking down the state of design in startups? You get a full house and furious note scribbling, that’s what. Tickets, $30.
Location: General Assembly, 902 Broadway, 4th Floor

August 31: Pitch NYC Application Due
Are you a beta-stage startup? Do you have at least one woman among your founders? If yes, and yes — do this. Hosted by Women 2.0, the application is a three-parter: online form, 2-minute video, and a napkin biz plan. And the prize purse is a rich one: $25,000, a meeting with Marc Andreessen, and an automatic finalist interview for TechStars NYC. Start here.
Finally, a tip of the hat to Neil Armstrong, who went on his way yesterday. 51 years ago, Armstrong announced, simply, “the Eagle has landed,” from a corner of the Sea of Tranquility, igniting the imagination of an entire globe.
