It was a great, eye-opening, day at the Silicon Alley Talent Fair. My orginal list of companies printed from the event’s website on Tuesday had about 125 company names listed. In itself that would be impressive, but the reality was that there were at least 150 after you included late additions and sponsors. It was a great representation of the start-up activity happening in the NYC area.
Even with some major heat inside the 69th Regiment Armory, the event seemed like a big success. I was lucky to meet with some good people from groups like Proclivity Systems, Figment.com, 33across, and EveryDay Health, and hope to have some future follow-up.
