NY companies: Join us at RRE Ventures May 11

If you’re based in New York and have the next big disruptive tech company, you’ll want to apply for a special session we’re hosting next month with one of New York’s  most respected venture capital groups, RRE Ventures.

A month after wrapping up DEMO Spring, we’re back traveling the world looking for the next awesome products to launch at the upcoming DEMO, to be held September 12-14 in Silicon Valley.

This New York session will give you a great opportunity to get feedback from a few RRE partners, myself (I’m DEMO Executive Producer and am in charge of selecting DEMO’s class of companies) and other key members of the DEMO team.

DEMO is where a long list of successful companies launched their earliest products, including Netscape, Salesforce, Palm, TiVo and E-Trade. Also, we’ve just launched a new DEMO Scholarship Partner Program, which effectively makes DEMO free for the earliest stage companies. This next event is going to be huge.

And with New York humming with new technology and media excitement, it’s going to be big stop for us.

Here are the details: On May 11, we’ll meet with up to 10 companies at RRE’s offices (130 East 59th Street, 17th Floor). Each company will be given 20 minutes to present to the DEMO team and partners from RRE Ventures, followed by 10 minutes of feedback.

If you’re interested in presenting at this gathering, please fill out this form. If you’re selected, we’ll get in touch with you immediately to provide instructions.

After the day of presentations, we’ll all be heading out to Katra Lounge (217 Bowery at Rivington), where the whole NY tech community is invited to join us for drinks. We’ll be buying drinks for the first 50 people through the door. If you’d like to come to the party, please register here.

Look forward to seeing some of you in New York!
