As 2023 draws to a close, we invite you to an engaging evening that promises to be a blend of insight, inspiration, and networking. We will feature two distinguished speakers: Jennifer Tegan, Managing Director at New York Ventures, Empire State Development, and Natalie Lung, a Tech Reporter at Bloomberg News.

Jennifer Tegan, with her deep understanding of New York's tech landscape, will delve into the current state of technology in New York, discussing New York Ventures' investment philosophy, and what they look for in founders and investments.

On New York Ventures: The NY state has devoted $100M –with an additional $35 million in SSBCI funding–to a direct investment venture capital fund that is actively deploying capital. The goal is to build a robust startup ecosystem across New York State, leveraging public and private sector assets.

Complementing Jennifer’s insights, Natalie Lung will provide an overview of the broader state of tech and consumer technology, leveraging her experience as a tech reporter to bring cutting-edge trends and insights to the forefront.

This is a must-attend for female founders and investors. It's not only an opportunity to gain valuable insights but also to connect with like-minded leaders in the field. Allies are welcome!
