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.

    NewCo Spotlight

    More than 35,000 people have turned out for Atlas Obscura’s events. Events, are just a small part of what they company does. Working off the premise that you haven’t seen anything yet, Atlas Obscura is creating an online compendium of “the world's most curious and awe-inspiring places.” Think of it as National Geographic for the millennial generation. Co-founder Dylan Thuras tells NewCo about the company’s mission, why he’s passionate about it, and what the company might look like in 5 to 10 years.

Global NewCo Partners

“NewCo keeps paying off… I had another fellow come in today that was introduced to us through the NewCo event. That makes 4 new members and of those members we may partner with two of them for additional collaborations!”
