NYCEDC Launches Global Business Exchange with Milan
First Exchange Program since Paris to Launch as Part of the NYCEDC Global Business Exchange
At the World Trade Week Awards Breakfast earlier this week, NYCEDC President Maria Torres-Springer announced the opening of applications for the NYCEDC Global Business Exchange — Milan. The Exchange, in partnership with the City of Milan, will build on the successes of the original Exchange with Paris to link New York City-based startups with cities across the world to attract top-notch business and talent to New York City.
On February 18, members of the 2016 NYC Venture Fellows class gathered at the headquarters of e-commerce company Next Jump for an afternoon of workshops focused on fostering a productive and innovative company culture.
In its first ever study of economic innovation, City Initiatives for Technology, Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CITIE) named New York City #1 in the world for a public policy ecosystem that is supportive of startups. Placing ahead of London, Helsinki, Barcelona, and Amsterdam, New York City’s long-term investment in tech appears to have paid off.
New York City is going big with the launch of NYC BigApps 2013, the fourth annual BigApps competition to promote government transparency and innovative new technologies, at an exciting New York Tech Meetup event.
