Tech NYC Intro Tour: Connect with New York's Technology Scene

New to New York tech? Looking for someone to show you the way? Join the Tech Connect NYC Tour, the new, walking/underground tour that gives you a deep dive into NYC's startup ecosystem while guiding you through some of NYC’s hottest co-working and accelerator spaces.

In just three short hours, we will visit a series of different coworking/accelerator locations, allowing guests to view the spaces, speak with community managers, ask questions, and even hear from some of NYC’s savviest and most successful startups. This monthly event is designed for those who are new to the New York startup world. Our aim is to help you find your bearings and set you on your way feeling empowered and motivated to make the most of New York City's vibrant startup community.

Friendly Reminders:

  • So much to see, so little time! As this is a carefully timed tour, we do ask that you arrive on-time as to make sure you get the most out of each stop.

  • You Can Never Predict the Weather...Especially in New York! We will be walking outside for portions of our tour, so we advise that you be prepared for all types of weather. Sunscreen, sunglasses, umbrella, light jacket, and comfortable walking shoes are all advised.

  • Remember Your Metro Card! Portions of the tour could involve travel on the subway, so please bring your Metro Card as we will not be providing them.

  • HYDRATION, HYDRATION, HYDRATION! In the summer, New York can be incredibly hot & humid and as we will be outside, a water bottle is highly recommended. Safety is the new sexy.


"Tech City Intro did a great job of introducing us to the major players and landmarks of the Tech City startup community."
Ally Basak Russell - Head of International Marketing, oDesk

"The speaker selection and information provided was excellent and a real eye-opener for anyone looking to find out about how the Tech City community operates and the challenges (and successes) that startups in the area face."
Anupam Sharma - Head of Business Development, Divino

"I’ve heard so much about Tech City but never really knew where to start exploring. The tour gave me an insight into what goes on ‘behind closed doors’ in what turns out to be a very open startup community!"
Dan Taylor - Director, The Giving Card

“I thought it was an excellent presentation and very engaging. Our team learned a lot and we booked a workshop for another team at JLL as soon as we had finished our first session.’’

Tom Brammeld - Associate Director, Central London Office Agency, JLL
