Carbon NYC is an invitation-only social network of sophisticated and influential professionals. Founded in 2004, Carbon NYC is based in Manhattan with an affluent international membership; members of the network receive access to New York City’s most exclusive offerings. For example, members of Carbon NYC had the chance to view apartments in the luxurious Setai several weeks before the general public gained access. During the Setai preview event, attendees received the opportunity to dine at the Setai’s five-star restaurant. The costs for such elaborate events are frequently underwritten by luxury goods companies including Audemars Piquet and Veuve Cliquot. In order to promote the social and professional success of its members, Carbon NYC encourages active membership engagement in its exclusive networking events. By participating in Carbon’s events, its members quickly develop strong personal and business relationships. Members of Carbon NYC include entertainment executives, entrepreneurs, Chief Executive Officers of public companies, high-profile physicians, and media producers. Although members hold diverse professional engagements, like-minded interests bring them together. In order to achieve membership with Carbon NYC, an individual must demonstrate a high level of professional success and personal ambition. Beyond their career achievements, all members actively pursue non-professional ventures in areas such as technology, sports, fine arts, performing arts, and philanthropy. While as many as 300 people submit applications to the network every year, Carbon NYC strictly limits its membership numbers.
