SF New Tech is the Bay Area’s largest, longest-running, and most-loved monthly technology event and networking mixer for people who can’t get enough of technology. It’s made possible thanks to Myles Weissleder (Founder, Producer & Host), Greg Viloria (Media Ninja) and when he’s in town, Matthew M. Gonzales (Deputy of Propaganda).
Why SF New Tech?
SF New Tech’s stage is a platform for young startups and established companies alike, to show off what they’ve been working on in front of a room full of people who actually care.
Most demos are done by the founders, CEOs, or lead developers of some of the most innovative companies around.
Each company (or developer) gets 5 minutes (sharp!) to strut their stuff under the spotlight and on the big screen and then another 5 minutes (sharp!) to answer tough questions from the audience.
Live demos and hot-seat discussions are what it’s all about. When tough questions from SF’s digerati cause the presenters to squirm, we know we’re doing something right.
Hundreds of companies have taken to the SF New Tech stage to demo their latest and greatest and thousands of companies have been in attendance.
Top companies have sponsored SF New Tech, including but not limited to Microsoft, AT&T, Flurry, Bullivant Houser Bailey, Motorola, Sun (now Oracle), Cisco, PayPal, The New York Times, and CALinnovates.org.
SF New Tech evolved from its first “meetup” of eight geeks talking about tech over cold pints at the Mars Bar back in April 2006, to a cornerstone of the Bay Area technology community; now serving over 10,000 tech industry movers and shakers, VCs, journalists, hackers, developers, recruiters and more who attend our events.
It’s the Bay Area’s most-loved tech event.
About the Founder
SF New Tech was founded by, and is produced & hosted by Myles Weissleder, who’s been dancing with pixels since 1994. Myles learned a lot about bringing like-minded folks together to make a difference as one of the “founding fathers” of Meetup.com. He is proud to have been able to grow what was once just a tiny “meetup”, into what’s now a Bay Area institution.
The SF New Tech office was once anchored off the shore of Sausalito, CA and was perhaps one of the only floating offices at the center of the technology world and in the middle of the San Francisco Bay. The “SS SFNT” has since been decommissioned. It’s a long story — a true fable of the sea — and you’re encouraged to ask Myles about it when you see him.
