YEC Members Gear Up for the Northside Innovation Festival, June 11 - 12

As part of the Northside Festival happening in Brooklyn, New York June 8 - 12, the Northside Innovation Festival is an exciting venue for those who want to discover what's next in technology, entrepreneurship, content and design.

Billed on their site as the "intensely Brooklyn counterpoint to South by Southwest," Northside Innovation has two major components: The Northside Innovation Expo and the Northside Innovation Conference.

The conference celebrates the entrepreneurs, technologists, designers and more who are changing the tech landscape and our shared experience. It offers programming across three verticals -- entrepreneurship, content and design -- which includes keynote speeches, fireside chats and interactive panels with innovation leaders from around the world. More than a typical tech conference, the event also includes workshops and pitch competitions.

Some of the speakers for the event include Adrian Covert from Fast Company, Catherine Clifford from Entrepreneur, Bill Macaitis from Slack, Brittany Laughlin from Union Square Ventures, Dan Roth from LinkedIn, Katie McMahon from SoundHound, Lauren Drell from Mashable, Paul Bud from Ello, Tina Roth Eisenberg from Swissmiss, and many more.

A great conference for successful entrepreneurs in any technical or creative space, numerous YEC members will be in attendance. YEC'ers also have access to discounted conference tickets as part of their of YEC member benefits.
