Though Silicon Valley may still take the cake as the capital of tech startups, the launch of new companies such as Gilt Groupe and Barkbox has allowed NY to creep closer and closer to the first place spot. And so, at Xconomy’s February 1st conference titled New York’s Venture Emergence (Event Space at Alexandria Center for Life Science from 2pm-6:30pm), NY-based startups such as the two mentioned earlier, will discuss how to create innovative new firms, along with presentations by venture capitalists.

The lineup of speakers includes Union Square Ventures’ Fred Wilson, Alexis Maybank, founder and CMO of Gilt Groupe, and Chris Wiggins, co-founder of HackNY.
