"Are there still Opportunities for Start Ups in the New York Region?"



The growth of Start-ups - & jobs at them - in the New York region has slowed. This is due to several factors: unlike in earlier software & web businesses, starting a business in artificial intelligence, data analytics & financial technology requires raising milions of dollars; the city's traditional advertising, publishing & retail businesses have come to be dominated by Google, Facebook & Amazon; & fresh graduates are finding jobs, unlike after the 2008-2009 recession.
Are there still opportunities for start-ups in New York? This will be discussed by (Ret.) Major General John Wharton, founder of R&D & logistics companies,Richie Hayden, co-founder Iris TV,Hassan Ahmed,director of finance eToro, a crypto exchange platform & Jerry Marcus, co-founder 1099 Partners & angel investor.

When: Monday October 22, 2018
