Media-related Venture Activity Is in Bloom in NYC New York is the capital of media, advertising, and finance, but historically Silicon Valley and Boston have overshadowed the city’s efforts to encourage and fund technology entrepreneurs. In the past two years, however, that’s changed — big time — especially when it comes to media-related ventures. Since early 2008, at least several dozen web-based startups have made New York a hub of web innovation. Startups like Boxee, Bit.ly, Foursquare, Daylife and numerous others have established New York City’s prominence as a nurturing environment for early-stage activity. Some seek to solve problems that are unique to an urban environment (Foursquare), or provide solutions that accelerate the disruption of incumbent New York media, including ad optimization (Quattro, Quantcast, Tremor Media. Why is the renewed activity in New York different from the last boom, of 2000-02? The scale of such an opportunity is defined by the revenue at risk. Supply vs. Fertile Ground Talent Pool Clustering

Innovation : La Poste mise sur les start-up françaises Pour rester la tête hors de l'eau, La Poste fait flèche de tout bois. Ce vendredi, elle recevait le feu vert de l'Autorité des télécoms pour augmenter ses tarifs de 5,2 % par an pendant quatre ans, afin de faire face à la chute des volumes du courrier qui plombe ses performances.

DEV – Why Here, Why Now | DEV Blog Today we officially opened the doors of DEV (Digital Entertainment Ventures). Given all the disruption in one of New York’s core industries, media and entertainment, and the continued focus on Silicon Valley as the place for new ideas, our move begs the question, “Why here? and Why now?” Because with great disruption comes great opportunity and New York, the city of reinvention, is leading the way.

In the music industry, a generation has grown up acquiring and listening to music through digital downloads and streaming as CD sales rapidly declined. Last year Nielsen reported the first decline in TV homes in 20 years, and pay TV subscribers flattened as some consumers scaled back. Video games have been one of the highest growth segments in entertainment with major titles tied to gaming consoles such as Playstation and Xbox. New Media Investing Landscape The DEV Advantage
