NYC's latest tech push: A new site designed to empower Silicon Alley. Not to be outdone by the West Coast, today the New York Economic Development Council is unveiling a new website, Digital.NYC, to help connect Silicon Alley.

NYC's latest tech push: A new site designed to empower Silicon Alley

This new website is an extension of the NYCEDC’s “We Are Made in NY” campaign, which aims to connect the broader film and digital media industry around New York through a giant map of companies, job openings, and co-working spaces. This new initiative more broadly targets New York City’s burgeoning tech sector. The site includes a searchable database of companies and investors, jobs, classes, events, and other media aggregated through a series of partnerships. It is powered by Angelist competitor Gust and IBM’s Blue Mix Cloud technology.

Entrepreneurs who visit the site will also get a free 30 day trial of IBM’s Blue Mix cloud technology to build their own digital infrastructure or mobile apps. IBM Vice President Sandy Carter tells me that nothing like this is being done anywhere else. Digital.NYC. The Rise And Future Of The New York Startup Ecosystem. Equally interesting is that New York has had 27 exits over $500 million since 2001, 59 percent more than Massachusetts and 31 percent the number of Silicon Valley.

The Rise And Future Of The New York Startup Ecosystem

Judged by either the amount of venture capital invested or the number of large exits, New York has emerged pretty definitively as the second-largest technology startup ecosystem in the country. These trends suggest strong continued momentum for New York, but they are only partially predictive of future growth. Sometimes startup ecosystems slow down significantly when the major trends driving their growth go into reverse. One recent example is the impact that the dramatic slowdown in demand for communications equipment had on the Massachusetts technology ecosystem after 2001. Communications equipment was responsible for more than half the venture capital invested in Massachusetts in the 1990s and produced the significant majority of the state’s large exits.
