Open Co New York - New York - May 23, 2013

Speaker: Jonah Peretti, Founder & CEO, BuzzFeed 11:00 am- 11:45 am BuzzFeed 54 W. 21st Street 11th Floor New York, NY 10010

BuzzFeed to host Open Co at BuzzFeed office with Jonah Peretti speaking.

THE OPENCONY FESTIVAL
The best way to experience and learn about the innovation economy isn’t in a stuffy board room – it is up close and personal and in its native habitat. Experienced marketers and conference organizers Brian Monahan and John Battelle would like your support for a new type of business conference called OpenCo, which we like to think of as a mix between a business conference and artist’s open studio with the vibe of a music festival. With your help, more than 100 of the most innovative businesses in NY will open their doors to the public on May 23.

This festival of innovation will celebrate companies that embrace a set of values surrounding the concept of openness: open collaboration, open communication, open community, open company and open doors to you. Attendees will meet these innovators in their native habitat and hear from the founders and executives about how they are trying to change the world and why. They will inspire you and help you make new connections, whether you are a job seeker, investor or simply a curious neighbor.
