BarCampMoneyNYC 2008

We finally set a date for BarCampMoneyNYC. Below is the PR blurb about it. As one of the organizers, we are looking for a couple sponsors for the event. If you are interested, give me a shout.



BarCampMoneyNYC 2008 is an ad-hoc gathering for the people who work in, cover or seek to revolutionize the finance industry to share and learn in an open environment will be held on Saturday April 12th, 2008 in New York City.

The event is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from all attendees focused on the trends and future of the Financial Industry. It costs nothing to attend, but there is a price: all attendees must lead a discussion, give a demo, a session, or help with one. With BarCampMoneyNYC based in the heart of the Financial Capital of the World, organizers expect a diverse group of individuals and companies from the Financial Industry to participate at this unique event.

BarCampMoneyNYC Event Details:
Date: April 12, 2008
Time: 9am - 5pm
Venue: Wilson Sonsini Goodrich and Rosati, 1301 Avenue of the Americas (between 52nd & 53rd street), 40th Floor.
