Have you heard? There's a new global economy and Quartz is part of it. Last night's NYC launch took place at the Meat Packing District's Toy. The evening offered everything from specialty cocktails to a sumptuous buffet of sushi to a full house of discerning NewYork City businessmen and women. Celeb DJs Andrew Andrew known for bringing everything from electro infused alternative to more mainstream tunes presided over the venue via an elevated DJ booth.
The draw? Quartz, a new digital brand from the publishers of the Atlantic, dedicated to helping business executives better navigate the complex new global economy. With reporters around the world, it provides analysis and essential news, of the seismic shifts in business, paced for around the clock reading on mobile, tablet, and desktop. Quartz's obssessions include the lingua francas of our modern age: commerce, design, and technology.
In attendance were Justin B. Smith ( President of Atlantic Media, Publisher of the Atlantic) , and Kevin J. Delaney (Quartz Editor-in-Chief & Co-Founder), Scott Havens, Gideon Lichfield, and Toure and wife Rita Nakouzi among others.
