THE MADE IN NY MEDIA CENTER BY IFP SPRING 2015 DEMO DAY CALL FOR ENTRIES IS NOW OPEN

ARE YOU AN ENTREPRENEUR OR A START-UP WORKING IN STORYTELLING AND TECHNOLOGY?

The Made in NY Media Center by IFP is a dynamic 20,000 sq.ft. facility, located in the heart of DUMBO, Brooklyn, featuring a co-working space, talent incubator, 72-seat screening room, art gallery, and café, in addition to dedicated spaces for classes, conferences, and meetings. The Made in NY Media Center by IFP opened its doors in October, in partnership with New York’s Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and NYCEDC.

The Media Center Demo Day Program, now in its third iteration, is designed to provide the center’s Incubator Members with the opportunity to pitch their company or project in front of an audience of VCs, potential sponsors, partners and clients.

For our Spring 2015 edition, we would like to open the doors to a non-Media Center team to experience some of the benefits of the program. We are looking to invite a guest team to join us for parts of our three-month intensive training program, including pitch training with an expert audience and a three part Speaker Series with the brightest minds in entrepreneurship from New York City. At the end of this program, you will have the chance to pitch your project or company to a curated audience of potential collaborators, press and investors.

Apply now!

If your project or company is selected:

• You will have 6 min to present your pitch in front of our Demo Day Panel, as well as curated audience of financiers, entrepreneurs, industry experts, agencies and brands on May 6th, 2015.
• You will have access to all of the Demo Day Pitch Training Sessions (please find schedule on our application site), prior to Demo Day, where you will have a chance to receive feedback on your deck from a variety of experts.
• You will have exclusive access to our Demo Day Speaker Series. Some of our previous speakers have included Anthony Casalena, CEO of Squarespace, Tom Ryan, COO of Archer Gray and Pete Corbett, founder of iStrategy Labs.
