We are still recovering from all the hustle and bustle. Our team here in NYC and in Berlin did an incredible job. I want to especially thank Stefanie Tendler, S2S’s Editor-in-Chief in Berlin for bringing it all together across the Atlantic. You can read about the Berlin launch party in the column next to this one.
Despite the gloomy weather last Thursday in NYC, which was very reminiscent of Berlin, and the challenging location of the Knockdown Center, many of you came out to celebrate with us. Thank you – we had a blast! How much we enjoyed your company, you can see in the video below.
We want to take the opportunity to especially thank some of the people who made this event happen.
