This evening marks the first #NXMW, and we couldn’t be more excited to be involved. Tonight at 7:30pm (at the Innovatrium in Ann Arbor), we kick off #NXMW with a TechStars vs. YCombinator panel, featuring Jeff Epstein (of Zferral/Ambassador, TechStars alum) and Zach Steindler (of Olark, YCombinator Alum). Following the panel, we will be continuing the party nearby at Sava’s.
It’s been an overwhelming response already with over 400 registered — folks will be making the drive from Detroit, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids and across the state to take part. Join us for drinks, swag, special guests and surprises galore…
