5in5NYC, a new show featuring 5 NYC startups. will be taping this friday at 5pm. If you’d like your startup featured in this episode, drop a comment on this post, or get in touch directly at me AT

This show will be a chance to shine more light on the ever expanding NYC startup scene and provide positive exposure to up-and-coming startups. We’re passionate about tech and entrepreneurship (we’re hackers and entrepreneurs ourselves).

Participating is easy – we’ll be using Google+ Hangouts to assemble the hosts and the 5 startups, so all you need to join in is 45 minutes, a webcam, and a quiet spot.
