Idea to Reality

Much of our work centers around startups raising money from investors, often in the very early stage when the business is not much more than an idea.  We know how difficult the fundraising process can be, so there's something special about seeing an entrepreneur land funding and get a chance to bring an idea to life.  That happened again this past week for a client.  It motivates us to do whatever we can to help bring value to the process.

Join us for a summer run through the streets of NYC. We'll start on the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn Bridge and end near the southeast corner of Central Park, but you can join for any part. All fitness levels welcome.  Rain or shine. Email for updates.

You'll need to sign up online at the links provided for ticketed events.  Attendance is at your own cost and subject to limited availability.  No need to RSVP to us for any of these events, but let us know if you'd like to be kept in the loop on any last-minute scheduling changes.  Also, keep in mind that these events are not firm-hosted or sponsored events, so we have no control over availability, pricing or any other matters associated with these events.  This is just our attempt at cultivating community by giving us all a chance to connect outside of the office.

About our Newsletter

We decided to launch a weekly newsletter with the simple goal of cultivating community.  Our newsletter covers (1) content relating to the startup industry that we liked from the previous week, giving you something to read, listen to, and watch; (2) content we created during the previous week, keeping you up to date on news and insight from our team; and (3) events and activities we plan to host or attend in the upcoming week, providing our community of clients, partners, and friends an opportunity to share, support, and connect with each other.
