Another exciting week has passed and another one is on the horizon for us at Knotel. So, we won’t linger or make too many jokes, we’ll just get right to it. (I bet you thought I was going to make a joke there, fooled you.)
On Wednesday, Knotel NoHo hosted the inaugural event of Tech Chat XX, a small group of women dedicated to shining a spotlight on influential and innovative women making waves in the New York tech scene. As a kick-off, it definitely didn’t disappoint, presenting a Q+A with Sophie Kahn and Bouchra Ezzahraoui, founders of AURate, and hosted by Nora Henick, founder of La Femme Collective.
AURate is a disruptive new jewelry company, featuring a direct-to-consumer business model with a one-for-one charitable element providing books to underprivileged children. Among their choice advice and entrepreneurial wisdom, Sophie and Bouchra emphasized that “if you’re passionate, it doesn’t matter” if the work is hard or the hours are long, you make it happen. You can check out AURate’s newest pop up on Spring Street between Wooster and Broadway & see some more of their advice via @knotel.
Tomorrow, the America’s Cup returns to New York for the first time in almost 100 years. As New Yorkers and Knotelers do, we’re planning to celebrate!
At 1:30 on Saturday, join us as we peer out the windows of our Battery location over the Hudson and witness the race’s return. Along with splendid views and exciting sport, join us for a drink, some nosh, and a tour of our newest space!
RSVP here before 3pm today to be added to the list.
And, yes, it is at least a little bit what it sounds like. For the 36 hours between 3am on May 14th and 3pm on May 15th, a collective of contributors will fill the sixth floor of Knotel NoHo with a transdisciplinary experience. You can join in and become a part of a “display in progress.” The experience will feature designers, artists, filmmakers, perfumers and more to create a unique and unpredictable result. The experience itself becomes the art.
