Event Details

Join us for a fascinating discussion with the coauthors of Tech and the City: The Making of New York's Startup Community, venture capitalist Alessandro Piol and journalist Maria Teresa Cometto.

Over 1,000 New York-based technology startups are currently hiring. Over the past several years the level of startup activity in the city of New York has increased at an exponential rate, reaching and surpassing Boston in number of tech companies formed and money invested.


Tech and the City will explore how and why this is happening: from the birth of Silicon Alley in the ‘90s to today’s level of activity and important milestones, such as the building of the Cornell NYC Tech campus and NYU's CUSP. We'll also discuss where NYC's startup community goes from here.
