Silicon Alley Gets Boost with Digital.NYC

Move over Silicon Valley; New York is upping the ante as a technology hotbed with Digital.NYC. With a little help from IBM, this citywide initiative is making The Big Apple a more attractive destination for startups to, well, start up. Not only is Digital.NYC fostering the city’s thriving tech community, it is opening up opportunities for high-tech talent in the Northeast.

Think of Digital.NYC as the Craigslist for the technology industry in New York City. From one online hub you can find events, jobs, courses and collaborative workspaces. Investors can quickly search for prospects among a sea of startups, and vice versa. Plus, gain access to resources that can empower you to start up yourself.

As NYC continues to solidify its status as the technology capital of the East Coast, it will be interesting to see how the industry will shape the city and its high-tech dwellers. In the meantime, I’m happy to see the East Side at the forefront of innovation and getting the recognition it deserves.
