With more than 290,000 tech jobs, New York City has emerged as one of the nation’s leading technology hubs, second only to Silicon Valley.
Growth has been and continues to be supported by the city’s unique competitive advantages, including access to first-rate experts, a direct connection to global capital markets, and a seat at the forefront of cutting edge design innovation.
The Brooklyn Tech Triangle is New York City’s strongest tech magnet, attracting local entrepreneurs and global thought leaders alike. The Brooklyn Tech Triangle, which consists of the DUMBO, Downtown Brooklyn, and Brooklyn Navy Yard neighborhoods, includes more than 500 innovative firms expected to undergo a transformative period of growth, creating 60,000 direct and indirect jobs within the next two years.
Hundreds of digital and creative companies working in close proximity to one another breed countless new innovations and collaborations, making DUMBO a considerable “neighborhood incubator.” This larger sense of community blurs the traditional lines between work and play, with monthly tech meet-ups, shared co-working environments, and abundant social programming creating added opportunities for spontaneous ideation.
