Need to find a space to host a networking event for CEOs/CTO and Ruby Develpers for November in NYC.  Anyone have any suggestions on venues around the Flatiron or Union Square area that's rents or sponsors  space for tech events?

If you need event production, etc. feel free to message me. Happy to help.

A non-traditional but interesting space in Central Manhattan might be 3929 studios...? Normally for acting auditions therefore inexpensive. Nice, new place and the owner is very accommodating. Just a thought! ᐧ

Depends on what number of guests you expect, but as a general answer...
I'd see if you can get a compatible sponsor at a WeWork location. You need a WW membership to use their spaces, but you could just contact one of their locations near Flatiron/UnionSq and ask for a compatible member business to contact.
Alternately, you could just join as a WW "We" member, which is only $45/mo with no long-term commitment. (This is their open-space membership for occasional use and online networking.) That puts you in the door, and then you simply reserve the space you need. And you may find, as I have, that the networking opportunities alone are worth the membership.
