Why NYC

Over 6,600 tech startup entrepreneurs have already decided that New York City is the best place in the world to start their business. Are you next?

The energy of the city is contagious, as is the energy of the startup community itself. You are in close proximity to the many events, services, and assets the City of New York makes available to you and your business. 

As the financial capital of the world, NYC-based networks can provide access to investors looking for the next billion dollar idea. In fact, funding applications in NYC outpace the rest of the country at 17.7%. 

The large, diverse, and educated workforce employs 4.2 million workers. For example, the retail sector employs 354,000 people or 8% of total workers, while healthcare employs 665,000 people or 16%. Since technology companies need more than technologists, you benefit from the designers, marketers, sales-professionals, and financial analysts that also call NYC home! 

Whether planning, legal or financial advice is needed, NYC offers resources to help guide you on the path to success. The NYC Business Solutions Team, a free service provided by NYC Small Business Services, is here to assist as you start your business, navigate through government, and apply for available incentives. To put it simply, NYC is here to help YOU!
