Essex Street Market Wows M-Corps Dinner Guests

On Tuesday, November 5, 2019, SecondMuse hosted the first-ever M-Corps Dinner & Awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of Cohort 1, and the beloved mentors and partners from the program’s first year. Hosted at NYCEDC’s Essex Market in the Lower East Side, the evening created an intimate setting for startups to enjoy amazing food, lots of laughter, and mini 3D prints of Shelby Thompson, the M-Corps Manufacturing Manager (and MC!). With locally sourced food from vendors located within the Essex Market – including salads from Ni Japanese, meat & cheese boards from Valley Shepherd Creamery, and vegetarian lasagna from Mille Nonne – this dinner could not be more farm-to-table!
