The NewCo Experience

John Battelle Explains the NewCo Experience

Since 2012, NewCo festivals have welcomed over 30,000 attendees into the offices of 1,500 innovative organizations. Attending a NewCo festival is a remarkable experience! It’s like a passport into the true culture of businesses changing the face of cities as diverse as Istanbul, Mexico City, New York, Austin, San Francisco, Barcelona, and Shanghai. Our "inside out" model is simple: Pick your city. Get your ticket. Choose which companies you want to explore.

    Shift Spotlight

    Between its founding in 2011 and the end of 2015, Greentown Labs supported 103 small businesses. Today, roughly 50 companies pay rent in exchange for access to desks, lab space, equipment, and software. All of those startups are developing hardware-based clean technologies to solve the world's largest energy and environmental challenges. The hope, and the mission, is to provide the resources startups need to help launch their companies quickly, including not just tools but education programs and access to investors. Greentown Labs' CEO, Dr. Emily Reichert, tells NewCo about the companies mission and its impact.

Global NewCo Partners

“NewCo is more than the sum of its parts; it's an event and experience that you start to really appreciate a few months after all is said and done when the new connections you've made with prospective users, fellow entrepreneurs and like minded people start manifesting themselves into new partnerships.”
