Last night was the DIY Business Association’s Speed Connecting event in NYC which was sold out to entrepreneurs, creative start-ups, designers, tech people and media. You know, the cool kids. In addition to the crowd of attendees, Krrb was happy to join some awesome collaborative-minded organizations on the panel.

Andrew delights the crowd with his tales of connecting neighbors and how we aim to support entrepreneurs and DIY Businesses.
