First time at NYC Tech Week: What to expect?

I'm a non-technical female founder with a pre-seed bootstrapped startup coming from outside the tech industry. We're currently building an MVP and will have a simple demo available soon.

I will be attending NYC tech week in two weeks and am wondering what to expect? Any tips or tricks? My goal is to build a network (from scratch) and possibly get some angel/pre-seed investment.

Anyone's experience at a tech week would be really benefical to hear about. Thanks!

If you haven't already Sara, definitely check out Elpha's networking event during tech week here: and I will be there and we'd love for you to come!
I requested to join! Hope to see you there :)
