Startup Tech Conference: The Show Must Go On, Until It Can’t
From editor in chief Chad Kaydo: On Monday, Ben Hindman, a producer of Uncubed, a conference for tech startups scheduled to take place at the Altman Building in New York Thursday and Friday, expressed concern about getting expected speakers from the likes of Meetup, Fab, Warby Parker, and Google to make it.
But Hindman, the C.E.O. of One Clipboard, was committed to moving forward with the event: ”I’ve thrown events in monsoons, hurricanes blizzards, and heat-waves….I think any event planner that is worth his/her salt would agree, the show must go on.”
Post-hurricane is another story, though. Hindman emails: “after all that big talk…. the venue got flooded. new dates 12&13th. all speakers the same. Bummer.”
