UVA in NYC Tech Panel

The Virginia Club invites you to the first-ever, “UVa in NYC Tech Panel: Stories from the Front Line of a Growing Sector” on October 7th at the Yale Club.

According to a study prepared by HR&A Advisors, the New York City tech ecosystem contains 7% of the City’s entire workforce – 291,000 workers who work in tech industries or perform tech functions for non-tech firms. The economic activity engendered by these direct jobs supports 250,000 additional jobs throughout the City’s economy, and generates $125 billion in total spending and over $5.6 billion in annual tax revenues.

Our panel will talk about what it’s like to be part of this growing sector of industry in the city, whether they’re technologists at tech companies, non-tech employees at tech firms, and those covering the industry.

Moderator: Chris Dannen, Editor, Fast Co (CLAS ’06)

Speaker: John Lewis, VP Finance, WeWork (’05)

Speaker: Mike Karnjanaprakorn, CEO/Founder, Skillshare.

Additional panelists will be announced shortly. Stay tuned for registration information.
