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.
Paris is a fixture on the list of top destination spots, but did you know that it's also one of the top business and tech ecosystems in the world? We recently launched the NYC-Paris Business Exchange, a program to help up to ten companies from each city expand their businesses to the partner city.
NYC Deputy Mayor for Housing and Economic Development Alicia Glen met with Amsterdam Deputy Mayor Kajsa Ollongren to discuss opportunities for collaboration between the two cities. As a result of the meeting, New York City and Amsterdam will work together to facilitate the exchange of startup companies in the tech and the creative sectors.
Do you have a technology that can reduce building energy use & operating costs?
