Tuesday night, roughly 150 members of New York City's tech community converged on the M1-5 Lounge to celebrate the relaunch of the NYC chapter of Girls in Tech. Guests included author Juliette Powell ('33 Million People in the Room'), and a number of faces familiar to those in the NYC tech scene including Brett Petersel, Oz Sultan, Devin Brown, and Marshall Sponder.

Managing Director Amy Cham and Events Director Janine Just took the mic briefly to introduce themselves and plans for the future of the chapter. Along with regular social and networking mixers, the management team seeks to create a program of events that blends career and business development learning for its members with community outreach initiatives that provide opportunities for members to mentor and coach other women and girls.
Raffle prizes were provided by eBags and Mint Cars on Demand, and additional sponsors included e.l.f. cosmetics, Good Earth Coffee, NextWeb, and Mashable.
