About Event

This event is a part of #TechWeek - a week of events hosted by VCs and startups to bring together the tech ecosystem.

PomPom’s second NYC Tech Week event on Monday, June 3rd is shaping up to be something very special for those attending, speaking, and supporting. We are curating this event to align with our core mission and purpose to impact, elevate, and share the experience of amazing thought leaders and innovators who have (and still are) disrupting and supporting our respective communities through culture, technology, and their intentions.

They shine bright while inspiring those yearning to connect with peers to validate all willing to listen and aid alongside the journey. Inspiring connection and community growth gives a voice and confidence to be part of the greater good, leading to meaningful outcomes to improve quality of life and global society. Whether you know it or not, you are a part of that conversation; we all are!

Our networking reception and panel discussions, in collaboration with our partners, will delve into the intersection of culture, impact, and AI—exploring how cultural dynamics are shaping transparency and privacy in this rapidly evolving space within the fintech industry and beyond.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to connect with these influential voices, and enjoy prizes (inspired by multiple rounds of Kahoot) & refreshments throughout the day. We can't wait to see you there!
