DUMBO Innovators Meet-Up with Mouth
The DUMBO Innovators Meet-Up is a monthly series highlighting innovative companies in DUMBO, Brooklyn. At this lively mixer event, meet your neighbors and experience the vibrancy this community has to offer first-hand.
DUMBO has long been home to individuals and companies with equal parts creativity and business acumen. Each month, we’ll be shining a spotlight on the vanguard, cutting edge companies and people who call DUMBO their home. During a brief moderated discussion, industry leaders in storytelling, media, and tech will share their philosophy around innovation: what it means for their company, and how to approach innovation in business as well as in life. This month, Sam Murray from Mouth will lead the discussion.
