Who We Are

The Mayor's Office of Technology and Innovation facilitates citywide coordination and collaboration on technology issues, serves as a catalyst for and advises agencies on innovation, and interacts with the wider New York City technology ecosystem. The office's mission is to fulfill Mayor de Blasio's vision of making NYC the most innovative, tech-friendly, and equitable big city in the world.

To do so, we will continue to attract the top talent to New York City, deepen our efforts to grow and foster local talent through education and workforce development programs, invest in our infrastructure, ensuring universal access to high-speed Internet for all New Yorkers, expand economic opportunity and reinvent government for the 21st century.

We invite you to learn more about these initiatives and welcome your comments and feedback.
