About New York Entrepreneur Week

NYEW is a 501c(3) non-profit organization founded by 26-year old serial entrepreneur Gary Whitehill. NYEW is the first of its kind in New York, and the largest aggregator of entrepreneurial events in the state this November. NYEW provides a framework and the catalyst for conquering New York's economic challenges by aggregating New York's most important disparate entrepreneurial stakeholders so that founders, angel investors, venture capital firms and New York's top connectors can learn, grow, network and leverage opportunities to do what they do best: drive economic change in exponential ways. Taking place throughout the week are over 350 events across the state from November 16-20th, 2009. NYEW consists of five days of innovative and hyper-targeted events, including: inspiring keynote speeches from recognized business leaders, riveting panels delivering relevant mission-critical advice, third party events and the flagship RELENTLESS business plan competition. The week unites the state's diverse entrepreneurial community and will provide an educational experience for all entrepreneurs -- from enterprising young idea-stage innovators to hundred million dollar revenue generators.
