Xconomy Forum: New York's Venture Emergence

With jobs growth anemic and full economic recovery still over the horizon, the stakes for creating innovative new companies are arguably higher than ever. Yet amidst the uncertainty come areas of frenzied growth—and it seems that almost overnight, behind a wave of super-valued startups from Foursquare to Gilt, New York has risen to rival Silicon Valley as the hottest center of startup incubation on the planet.

We’re bringing together some of the city’s leading venture capitalists and entrepreneurs—as well as a few out-of-town guests from around the Xconomy network with their eyes on the prize in New York—for an unparalleled afternoon exploring the Big Apple’s venture emergence, the strategies of some of its hottest startups, and what challenges lie ahead for entrepreneurs and investors alike.
