Event Details

New York City is quickly becoming a global hub of technology and innovation and an emerging data platform for residents, businesses, and visitors. The annual NYC BigApps competition, which challenges developers to create useful apps using City data, is an important piece of the City’s overall efforts to promote innovation and open government. So far the City, through a partnership with BMW, has awarded more than $100,000 in prizes among 31 winning BigApps. The competition also contributed to the City’s landmark Open Data Policy, which ensures ongoing public access to city information. NYC BigApps, in addition to other groundbreaking City-sponsored initiatives, is becoming a catalyst for startups and helping spur incredible growth in entrepreneurship across the City—from Chelsea to Brooklyn, and soon, Roosevelt Island. Join several BigApps winners, judges, City officials, and City-based technology experts to hear how BigApps helps spawn new start-ups and foster the open data movement in New York—and find out what is in store for NYC’s emerging culture of innovation.

Rachel Sterne, New York City’s Chief Digital Officer, will introduce the panel.
