My name is Frank Denbow and I have been nominated to the NYTM board. For the past year I have been involved in the NY tech community and have learned a great deal from meeting many of you. Particularly, I have enjoyed the discussions with people I have met at NYTM. I would love to give back and support this community further by being involved with NYTM as a board member.
For a few years in college, I ran my own events company, organizing large scale dance and entertainment events in Pittsburgh. I learned a great deal about long term planning and the last minute details that go into organizing live events similar to the NYTM. From experience I know that it is quite a task to put together these kinds of events, and you must keep a cool head in crunch time when things may not go according to plan. I hope I can bring some of this experience to this group. My goal is to help out behind the scenes, helping find new startups and founders to feature, and ensuring that you all get a great experience when you come to the events.
Beyond this, I strive to help the NYTM organization expand beyond the monthly event, to help serve its members even further. We can find ways to support each other in our entrepreneurial endeavors, connect with NYC as a whole, and improve the landscape of innovation in NYC. As a board member, I would listen to your concerns and see to it that your interests are being met in these regards.
Thanks for considering me :-)
