Steph and Ellie @ MediaBistro Startup Event

Update: See how we’ve been doing since our move; Gigaom writes about us leaving Silicon Valley for NYC. 

Who doesn’t love a cross-country move?

ConsumerBell  is excited to announce we’re now based in New York – taking the team all the way from the West Coast was a big shift but so far the  excitement has been worth it.

Since moving to Manhattan, ConsumerBell has had the chance to attend a variety  of mixers and events from MediaBistro’s Startup Hour to Lean Start-up Pitches at Microsoft to Digital L.A networking in TriBeCa – New York is filled with smart and hot companies. We love this city already!

Some funny things have happened too. Canaan Partners delivered beer to our office as a welcome gift and WebMediaBrands, who we share the floor with, has been friendly working neighbors. Even Alan Meckler, Chairman  and Chief Executive Officer of WebMediaBrands joined in the fun by becoming an investor in ConsumerBell!

Besides getting settled in the big city, ConsumerBell is working on a variety of partnerships we’re excited to unveil in the next coming weeks. We had successful talks with IsThatOdd.com and several other product-sampling related companies so we can branch out and offer as many options as possible for our new marketplace that is launching next week.

In the meantime, look for ConsumerBell at the Mom2.0 Summit in New Orleans April 13th thru 16th, join the conversation online: #Mom2Summit

Last but not least, our team is growing!  Our latest addition is a low maintenance work-a-holic who never leaves the office – and needs no bathroom breaks! She is so pretty but we haven’t found a name for her yet.  What would you name this flowery addition?

We can’t decide – take a vote please?

Welcome her to the team by picking out a name below! WHAT IS HER NAME?
