The Summit Is Official!

New York, NY — NY Tech Meetup and The Work Revolution announce their first invitation-only Summit, to be held at the Centre of Social Innovation in New York City on September 20-21, 2013.

The event will bring together a group of leading entrepreneurs, startup investors, futurists, organizational designers, and technology experts, and aims to fundamentally re-design the “operating software” of business, with the express purpose of providing startups and entrepreneurs the tools they need to maintain an astonishingly “human” company culture as they grow and scale their organizations.

“We have an opportunity to completely re-imagine the good things business can do for the world. In a decade, businesses could be sitting at the epicenter of human wellbeing. In order to do this, though, we need a revolution. If we want better organizations in 5/10/20/50 years, entrepreneurs have to start thinking about company culture before they hire even one employee,” said Work Revolution co-organizer Josh Allan Dykstra.

“Entrepreneurs are faced with a unique opportunity to not only build innovative products but also to build companies that forge a new path for what a workplace that helps both the employee and the employer reach their full potential can look like. The world will get better when we build better organizations, not just when we build better products,” said Work Revolution co-organizer and NY Tech Meetup Executive Director, Jessica Lawrence.

The Work Revolution Summit is organized by NY Tech Meetup and The Work Revolution. NY Tech Meetup is a non-profit working to build a sustainable and diverse technology industry in New York ( The Work Revolution is a movement + campaign that advocates for life-giving work environments by facilitating collisions of revolutionary individuals and sharing the stories of startup gurus, entrepreneurs, change agents, and thought leaders who are actively making the workplace more human and meaningful (
