NY Edition

This Week’s Affairs from Wakefield

Events for November 5 – November 11

We’ve never looked forward to a commute so much (or at all, for that matter). Lots of last week’s events have been re-booked for this week, and some of this week’s are still prone to rescheduling, so be sure to double check before you show up somewhere expecting a drinks do. Of course, many New Yorkers are still struggling from the hurricane’s aftermath – check out WNYC’s great roundup of volunteer opportunities here.

November 6: Growth Hacker Drinks, 7pm


This meetup for startups, marketers, and technologists should prove a casual drinks and discussion affair. On the agenda – a conversation concerning how to take advantage of using the web to distribute. All other items of conversation are expressly forbidden. RSVP here.

November 7: Publishers meet Advertisers Cocktail Mixer, 6:30pm


Following the AD:TECH NYC conference at the Javits Center, DaniWeb hosts this networking event for “publishers, advertisers, ad agencies, ad networks, and everyone in between.” We’re not sure who the “in-between” is exactly, but we’re intrigued just the same. RSVP for free here.

The Latin American tech presence is heating up in New York. Red Innova’s New York conference features an all-star lineup of startups, demos, panels and speakers with an interest south of the border.

November 8-9 Visualized Conference, 9:00am


We’re softies over here for a well-produced event and an attractive event website. Visualized appears to be both. A two-day conference on data and the stories it tells, the lineup is an impressive lot of number crunchers, design gurus, and, well, DJ Spooky. Tickets start at $699 here.

Location: Times Center, 242 W. 41st Street


November 9: Capital On Stage New York, 1:30pm


What do you get when 170 founders and 20 investors walk into the top floor of the New York Times building? Sorry, no real punchline here – the answer is Capital on Stage’s New York event. There’s a chance to book one-on-one meetings with investors, as well as a full roster of speakers. Request an invite here.

Location: Goodwin Procter, 620 Eighth Avenue

They’re calling for a nor’easter mid-week, so the weird weather has not yet abated. Be careful out there!

Now go forth (and respondez vous s’il vous plait).
