NYC’s Startup Community is Booming, Thanks to TechDay NYC

Nationally speaking, hosting an event in Las Vegas means it’s a pretty serious event. In New York, hosting an event in the iconic Jacob Javits Convention Center is a sign of growth, especially when the event outgrows its legacy venues. That phenomenon held true for TechDay NYC, which we’ve covered previously, completing a massively successful 8th annual event in NYC, showcasing over 300 exhibiting startups, hosting thousands of attendees, and setting the stage for dozens of insightful...

Car Ad Start Up Grabb-It Makes a Splash with F-35 Fighter Jet Ads Atop RideShare Cars

San Francisco-based Grabb-it took a bit of a different “turn” — no pun intended — when it comes to vehicle ads.

Reinvented Classics Get a High Tech Makeover at CES 2019

Where does one even begin when discussing CES. As anticipated, there were lots of new, cool technologies but there was a lot of the same too. For the first couple of days after CES ended, when people asked me what were the coolest gadgets I saw, I just froze.
