Unbound Presents

The Huddle, Hosted by Mastercard

Every month in New York, 30 – 40 like-minded entrepreneurs, tech talents, investors and thought leaders will gather together at The Huddle, for a vibrant dinner hosted by Mastercard and Unbound, with themes centred on the tech trends shaping our digital future.

The community will bridge the gap between people working for brands and corporate companies, investors and grassroot innovators. The innovative people you meet at Huddle will help accelerate your career, your business and inspire new ideas.


Hosted by Unbound and Mastercard

Together with Mastercard, we’re building a global, diverse ecosystem of entrepreneurs, investors and thought leaders. The Huddle will bring together some of the most innovative minds for a crossover of conversation, to find ways of greater collaboration, to help others succeed and transform the digital economy.

We are launching in New York in December 2018, where our monthly Huddle dinners will welcome 30 – 40 dynamic entrepreneurs, innovators, investors, developers, financiers and ecosystem enablers.

We strongly believe inclusivity fuels innovative ideas, so we’re committed to building a community that addresses the gender, age and racial disparity in tech. In order to encourage diversity, at each dinner, at least 50% of attendees will be female and 1/3rd will be new to this community, with varying backgrounds.

With Unbound’s global network of over 120,000 people, this is the chance to meet those who can help you succeed, in an intimate, relaxed environment.

About The Huddle

What’s the format?
An interactive session led by an influential speaker, with topics dependent on the trends shaping our digital future. Dinners at exclusive locations across Manhattan, from 7pm.

An open bar will be followed by a three- course dinner.

How can you benefit from the community?
Each participant will introduce themselves and may submit an ‘ask’ i.e. a challenge to be solved.

It’s then up to the community to collaborate to solve that ‘ask’, ultimately helping one another to succeed. Asks might include support in finding investment, scaling a business into new markets, regulatory advice, talent referrals, an introduction to an influential person, to name a few. Mastercard is a founding partner and can help open doors for dynamic entrepreneurs.

Who foots the bill?
Mastercard supports the vibrant, fast-paced Huddle community to help it unleash its full potential.

How to take part?
This initiative is designed to empower New York’s tech community. Access is By Invitation Only, so if you are interested, please email
