John Battelle Explains the NewCo Experience

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: Embrace has Helped 200K Babies Stay Warm – and Stay Alive

    Preterm and underweight babies who survive their first month can still suffer severe long-term health problems — diabetes, heart disease, developmental delay. Keeping them warm can help prevent those problems. Jane Chen, Embrace Innovations’ CEO and co-founder, tells NewCo that over the next few years the company wants to go from helping 200,000 babies across 14 countries in the developing world to helping a million. In order to do that, it’s counting on an assist from its consumer-facing product — Little Lotus.

  • The Dots: A portfolio platform for the creative industries

    The Dots — a professional network for creatives

    NewCo talks with Pip Jamieson, founder of The Dots. The UK-based online network helps companies find talent, and gives creatives a place to post portfolios and find job opportunities from companies like MTV, Spotify, and others. “I really believe that creativity is a force for good,” Jamieson says. “Soon machines are going to drive, code, do our laundry … The last things humans are going to be good for is creativity. So, we help harness that community.”
