Spoke last week at Digital Hollywood in NY. A few observations:
2) Lots of buzz and activity around the location / offers concept, lots of it tied back to FourSquare.
3) There’s a rabid angel investor network in NY. In today’s market with many companies getting started with less than $500K-$1M, guys like Fabrice Grinda are backing a lot of cool companies. One angel I spoke with has written 38 checks in the last 24 months.
4) Ton of activity around new ad formats and concepts. A lot of Doubleclick alumni + ad network founders you may not have heard of with liquidity from later stage vc’s – funding their own startups + raising capital from the angel network.
Special thanks to Ed Zimmerman, NY’s uber tech attorney, for making intros and another fabulous wine dinner.
