When I joined DUMBO Startup Lab last year, Freddie and I shared a vision of making DSL a hub for startups in Brooklyn. Coworking is core to our business model but we also want to be viewed as advocates for the Brooklyn tech community. With that in mind, we plan to start hosting regular networking, happy hour events at DSL.
The idea behind the events is to leverage our physical space to increase the psychological awareness of the growing BK tech industry. We want to raise awareness among DUMBO and Brooklyn people, our friends across the East River and especially those Brooklyn residents who work in Manhattan about the reality that building your business here might just be a better option for you and your team.
We’re going to kick things off next Friday at 6:30pm. You don’t have to be a techie to participate, the event is open to anyone who just wants to meet other cool people. If you’d like to join us (and I hope you do), register here: http://fridaydumbomixer.eventbrite.com.
