We'll be hosting our next NY Tech Mixer meetup on February 26th at Gallery Bar (120 Orchard Street)! NY Tech Mixer provides the New York Tech community with a space where members can meet, socialize, and talk tech in a fun and informal setting. As usual with our Demos & Drinks events, the format is a mix of both networking and demos. We'll have five startups give lightning-round demos, followed by general networking and hanging out. In the past, we've had a healthy, broad mix of entrepreneurs, technologists, and investors - anyone interested in tech and the NY startup scene is welcomed!

- Shindig - Harry Raymond, Co-founder / CEO
Shindig started with a simple question: "What the hell was the name of that drink?" We love trying new things and exploring this city over drinks but we can never remember the names of the wines, beers and cocktails we try. Shindig is a fun, free way to remember and share the drinks we love. We’re looking for feedback and angel investors.
- Gourmet Spotting - Sandro Diazzi & Aman Sarkaria, co-founders
Gourmet Spotting is a monthly subscription service of gourmet food from local artisans and producers from around the world. Every month we discover, select, and ship 4 to 6 full-size products and pair them with recipes. For every box that we ship, we donate a meal to charity. We launched in November 2012 and we’ve been featured on ABC, Huffington Post, Cool Mom Picks, Girl Gone Travel. We’re looking for investors for our seed round and a CTO to join our team.
- Aidin - Russ Graney, Founder/CEO
Aidin is a healthcare technology company bringing transparency, data and patient-friendly guidance to help patients choose the best healthcare providers available. Aidin is used by hospital staff to generate listings of healthcare providers available to serve patients after they leave the hospital (like nursing homes and rehab facilities). Aidin tracks outcomes data to show hospital staff and patients which providers are most successful working with which patients - helping people find the best match for their individual health needs. We are re-imagining how healthcare software can look and feel and building a tool that, for the first time, incentivizes providers to improve the quality of care they offer - Think Yelp for healthcare. We're currently piloting in several large academic hospitals and looking to bring on 1-2 Rails developers.
- VibeAround.com - Hazem Sayed, Founder/CEO
Vibearound publishes Vibe, the mobile app for putting thoughts on a map and connecting with people based on where they are, instead of who they are. Vibe makes it easy to discover the "vibe" around you and auto-plays 7 second preview loops of posted video and audio clips. We are currently focused on growing Vibe's user base in the following communities/industries: fashion (photography, modeling), music (artists, events), and local businesses. We are looking for investors and community partners.
