    As usual, Andrew and the gang put a great group of people in one room to share insights, opportunities and some friendship as well. I look forward to subsequent events.

    Great event for which I essentially regret not having had enough time to speak to everyone. I also thought it was very tech-oriented and was hoping for more social media & marketers for instance.

    This was a terrific venue and a terrific event. Having attended a large number of meetup events, I can say the quality of the people, large attendance, and good cross segment of vendors / entrepreneurs was second to none. Andrew should be appluaded for getting one of the crucial cogs in the NYC venture capital environment to give a speech on how to get your ideas front and center. Looking forward to the next event.

    This event was absolutely awesome. I enjoyed a great sense of camaraderie as I met up with new friends and caught up with friends from past NYEBN meetups. Many inspirational conversations took place that included mutually beneficial exchanges of suggestions and ideas. I look forward to the many follow-ups from this meetup and the next NYEBN event!

  • Jon Landers

    The meetups are not a bad idea, except when it gets so loud with so many people in a small space that you have to yell at each other. Too bad there isn't a venue where the space is about four or five times the size to accommodate so many people talking at the same time. That's the only down site to these venues. And it couldn't hurt to offer some food during these events since they run during dinner time anyway. I could never understand how so many people can drink alcohol on an empty stomach.....

  • Adam Cardona

    Great event, it was really packed out! I enjoyed it.

  • MktgMolly

    Good overall - got to meet a few people. What may be helpful next time, is to perhaps for the host to ask for a show of hands asking Who is a marketing professional Who is an entrepreneur Any other category and then ask if there are others who did not fit into any of the mentioned categories to raise their hand, for a quick intro of their category Will help people then seek out the people they want to meet I'd rate it 4

  • Matt Sawyer

    Too many non-digital media vendors.

  • Maiko Sakai

    It was my 1st time attending the meetup. The turn-out was great. It was just a bit too crowded to navigate through people.
