The attendees at the NJ Tech Meetup held at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NH last August 28 were all praises for venture capitalist Charlie O’ Donnell of Brookyln Bridge Ventures and his “refreshingly candid” talk as a VC. The meetup also featured three startups.
If last August 27’s meetup at Wework is any gauge, Ignite NYC may just be the counterculture to NY’s predominant pitch-and-get-funded startup scene, the way it tackled how people relate to sensors, devices and wearables from various anthropological, existential, medical and even recreational standpoints.
