SF New Tech Celebrates 6 years!

Posted by Tom Foremski - March 21, 2012

Myles Weissleder is one of my favorite people, he's the hard working organizer of the excellent SFNewTech events, held once or twice a month in San Francisco at Club Mighty.

These events are very high in geek-content with a roster of 5 or 6 startups, each with a 5 minute presentation followed by five minutes of questions. Myles always makes sure everyone sticks to their time. There's usually a very spirited question time because the audience is mostly fellow starters, which leads to great feedback.

It's definitely a demo/pitching event rather than a partying event. There's usually a food truck or two outside and plenty of parking.

Tonight's lineup looks great:
