-A wonderful opportunity to hear about new ideas, technologies and make connections.

I went for my first ever NY Tech Meetup (NYTM) on Tuesday, October 9th 2012 at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts after my business partner at iFunding recommended that we attend it.

It is an excellent opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds and see what others are doing in the extremely vibrant NYC tech scene.

Instead of asking a small number of sophisticated investors for large amounts, crowdfunding allows an individual or organization to reach out to a large number of people for smaller amounts of money.
