WalkaboutNYC is a behind-the-scenes look at the people and places fueling our creative, technological, and entrepreneurial culture in New York City. Our events invite the world into the workspaces of NYC’s innovative companies to see how they work.
We run two events throughout the year:
- WalkaboutNYC Tech Edition – Each Spring, during Internet Week New York, our event provides access to companies driving New York City's tech scene. See our Storify wrap-ups from May 2012 and May 2013.
- WalkaboutNYC Agency Edition – Each Fall, our event provides access to independent creative agencies that keep New York City at the center of the advertising world. See our Storify from October 2012.
Danny Wen and Shawn Liu, founders of Harvest, have always enjoyed taking tours of workspaces. Whether it's a loft or shared co-working space, they've always been inspired to see where companies are born, people spend their time, and products are launched. WalkaboutNYC enables them to share that experience with the public.
