New York based start ups…

Nyc Manhattan From Empire State Building 2003
Nice list of NYC based start ups and companies, we’d add Adafruit, MAKE (has an offices & lots of staff here) and MakerBot of course :)

What sets New York apart from the rest of the world?  New York attracts the most creative, ambitious, and hard-working people into one extremely diverse city.  There’s an energy here that can’t be replicated anywhere else in the world.  Mix that with a great nightlife, culture, and a city that never sleeps — you can see why the New York startup movement has been picking up momentum.  I believe that NYC tech startups have a better eye for design, user experience, business models, and creating companies that solve real problems (and not launching more “me-too” companies).  And the icing on the cake?  The companies coming out of NYC right now are just… sexy.  There’s no other way to explain it.

  1. I’m really happy to be here in nyc, and even more happy that so many businesses and people find a home here. Only in the past few years did I sort of “wake up” and find that I was born in such a hot bead of creativity.
