Since 2012, NewCo festivals have welcomed over 30,000 attendees into the offices of 1,500 innovative organizations. Attending a NewCo festival is a remarkable experience! It’s like a passport into the true culture of businesses changing the face of cities as diverse as Istanbul, Mexico City, New York, Austin, San Francisco, Barcelona, and Shanghai. Our "inside out" model is simple: Pick your city. Get your ticket. Choose which companies you want to explore.
Matt Mahan, CEO and co-founder of Brigade, discusses the company’s mission with NewCo. We also get a peek at the app, a “citizen empowerment platform” that provides tools to help people “participate in voting, advocacy, and awareness-raising to have an impact on political outcomes that affect their lives.”
When underutilized, public spaces can become eyesores, but mostly they represent wasted opportunity. By identifying and understanding the value of underutilized spaces, Off the Grid has grown 13,000% since Matt Cohen, its CEO, founded the company in 2010. People in the Bay Area mostly associate the company with food trucks, parked at places like Fort Mason and the Oakland Museum of California. Cohen, however, sees it as a logistics company.
“ NewCo helped confirm that our mission is not only resonating with our internal stakeholders and customers, but also with outside general consumer, patients, providers.”
“I was very inspired by all the different business stories I heard. I've met some amazing people that I plan to hold onto!”
“We received many compliments from our session and as a result, people wanting to get involved with our program.”
“We had some great conversation during our session, people throwing out new ideas that we hadn't even thought of before! ”
“Subscribe and read the @NewCo daily. Definitely worth your time. Not an ad, just a fan. ”
“I really liked that there were both large and small, and old and new companies involved in this event. Really great energy!”
“I always tell people it is a city-wide innovation open house. Such a cool opportunity to meet many new innovative companies and people in one city.”
“I had a blast. It reinvigorated me, which I think might be a measurable outcome to consider . Sometimes we go to these events to remind us that what we are doing or pursuing makes sense.”
“We should be sending nearly everyone at our company to this event next year. ”
“NewCo is more than the sum of its parts; it's an event and experience that you start to really appreciate a few months after all is said and done when the new connections you've made with prospective users, fellow entrepreneurs and like minded people start manifesting themselves into new partnerships.”
