Outbrain is proud to be one of more than 600 New York City startups, investors and co-working spaces named in the Made in New York Digital Map, which reveals the office locations of tech start-ups and the industry’s more than 1000 job opportunities. The map was conceived by Internet Week New York in conjunction with the Mayor’s Office and was revealed this morning during day two of Internet Week.

According to Crain’s New York, “The Made in New York map is the latest effort by the Bloomberg administration to hype technology growth in the city, which had lagged behind Boston and Silicon Valley as a tech center. According to a report released last week by the Center for an Urban Future, however, New York was the only leading technology region to post an increase in the number of venture capital deals between 2007 and 2011, and now trails only Silicon Valley as a hub for tech-related deal making.”
“We expect this map to be another tool that helps propel our tech industry forward,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg said at the event.
“Given that new NYC startups and incubators are seemingly popping up every day, the map will be a useful way to make sense of everything tech going on in the city,” according to a piece on VentureBeat.com. “And it looks to be a killer tool for landing a startup gig.”
We’re thrilled to be a part of such a vibrant, burgeoning community and we look forward to witnessing (and developing!) some of the amazing innovations coming out the five boroughs in the next few years.
