About Event

Always Be Closing is nextNYC’s revenue and sales focused event. It’s an opportunity to connect startups with top NYC companies and organizations who can serve as potential customers. After all, that’s why so many startups decided to locate their businesses in this city!

We gather key decision makers in specific business areas who have shared their challenges and opportunities to run their businesses better. Startups will apply to get the opportunity to pitch their products and solutions in-person.

The host for our inaugural event is Datadog, one of NYC’s biggest startup success stories. This $40 billion public company was started by two technical founders, Olivier Pomel and Alexis Lê-Quôc, who had previously worked together at a Brooklyn-based edtech startup. Now, with over 5,000 global employees, they’re a significant buyer of tech that any startup would be lucky to have in their pipeline and on their customer list.

Looking to pitch? Apply here.
