Tech Hubs Flourish Outside of Silicon Valley
Mashable highlights the growth of New York City tech, thanks to NYCEDC’s groundbreaking Applied Sciences NYC tech education and other initiatives to support entrepreneurship in the city:
To help facilitate economic growth in each of the five boroughs, the New York City Economic Development Corporation is following the startup movement closely. It’s a non-profit whose goal is to encourage redevelopment programs and ultimately create new jobs across the city.
The organization has been focused on building an engineering campus — called NYC Tech Campus (Applied Sciences NYC) — in the boroughs. With Cornell University and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology partnerships, the initiative will provide 20,000 construction jobs and 8,000 permanent jobs, along with more than $23 billion in economic activity over the next 30 years.
