New York City


Thousand Network’s New York City hub brings together young achievers based in NYC to learn, exchange ideas, support each other, and grow through once-in-a-lifetime experiences and friendships with other members both in the city and around the world.

We are entrepreneurs, artists, change makers, fashion designers, makers, innovators, producers, researchers, architects, policy makers, consultants and generally warm & amazing people from all over the world living in NYC.

We hold regular monthly dinners, breakfasts, and other events so members can get to know each other better, talk about what is going on in their lives, and generally just be amongst friends. We also organize inspiring events and love to get away to retreats in the Poconos.

Based in one of the greatest cities in the world, we welcome fellow members of Thousand Network from all over the world on a regular basis.

The members of the NYC hub start companies, build products, make poetry, rejuvenate ecosystems, start movements, reshape the political landscape, teach startup skills, redefine the educational experience, write books, change perceptions, teach young coders, produce TV shows, build communities, build hotels, and make documentaries, dresses, toothbrushes, and robotic eyes.
