The inaugural First Coast Innovator's Gathering proved to be a big success at our September RESI, both for investors looking for the earliest stage companies and tech hubs wanting to gain exposure for their programs and constituents. Due to the positive reception, we are again featuring regional tech hubs at our upcoming RESI in NYC on November 5th. RESI NYC will feature tech hubs from New York and the surrounding states, including CT, RI, NJ and PA, bringing their constituents and displaying their technologies. In addition, tech hub constituents can apply to the Pitch Challenge for the chance to pitch to a panel of investors. Applications from the members of registered tech hubs will be accepted through Monday, October 15th, so don't miss out on your chance!
