The tech ecosystem is growing and growing and it’s not just engineers who are rolling into town hungry for action. Be they seed fund programs or co-working spaces, the supporting infrastructure needed by many startups are making their present felt at an astonishing rate. This applies to DreamIt Ventures, whose avowed goal is to provide seed funding and a lot of other goodies to its portfolio companies.
Though DreamIt has announced its presence, it has yet to set up shop somewhere in Manhattan. Despite the lack of a physical location, DreamIt already leaked its itinerary for 2011, which includes a vast array of opportunities waiting for potential clients, be it an all star cast of advisors or an official Demo Day.
