Where can you find 77,000 square feet of Startup Awesomeness? NY Tech Day of course, an event founded last year by Alec Hartman and John Petersen. On April 25th, New York City's Pier 92 will welcome hundreds of startups eager to display their business, product or idea to a host of potential consumers, employees and investors. "NY Tech Day has the largest footprint of any single-day startup event on the planet," said Adam Carver, NY Tech Day Director, adding "It is the event for entrepreneurs to declare their relevancy and demonstrate traction and value proposition to their core target audience." And with that audience set to reach numbers between 10,000 and 15,000, there will be plenty of opportunity to do just that. At NY Tech Day's inaugural event held at the Lexington Armory in 2012, 200 startups were invited to showcase their companies to 4,500 attendees. By contrast, this year's expo not only expects three times the number of guests, but also has room for more than 500 exhibitors and will include events such as an exhibitor pre-party and an exclusive Press and Investor Hour. Carver said that "in true startup fashion," they have learned from last year's NY Tech Day experiences and have built a "bolder and far more impactful event in 2013." He goes on to say that some additional changes include eliminating panels and speeches that take away from the exhibitors, adding a tech jobs fair to go along with the other NY Tech Day activities, and partnering with "bigger and more relevant sponsors that offer the exact services startups require to win."
