The NewCo movement is growing … and fast! The first festival was held in October 2012 and since then we have produced a total of six festivals around the world. This year we are set to produce a total of eight festivals, which includes Amsterdam, San Francisco’s 3rd annual festival, Detroit, New York, London, Boulder, Silicon Valley and Los Angeles.
We are pleased to announce the beginning of our 2015 expansion plans with the first new city confirmed: NewCo Istanbul will join our roster of festivals. In addition to the current markets and now Istanbul, look for up to 20 festivals around the world next year. We are currently in conversations with potential partners in Austin, Raleigh-Durham, Singapore and other Asian markets just to name a few.
We want the NewCo platform to extend to any market where there is “critical mass” of NewCos: mission driven and forward looking companies from any industry who value engagement with their community and who embrace opening their doors to share their stories. If you think your city has potential and you are interested in becoming an affiliate partner please do not hesitate to contact us.
