  15. 15. The NYC X Factor •  NYC always welcomes newcomers – tech no different –  350+ tech meetups with more than 320K+ members –  NYTM is the pinnacle, with more than 35K members •  Easy to see that community is core to NYC’s success •  But is there a way to analyze impact more quantitatively? 5 MAR 2014 | PAGE15
  16. 16. •  Endeavor is a global not-for-profit that catalyzes countries’ economic growth through high-impact entrepreneurship •  To support their mission, Endeavor’s research group has mapped the startup genome around the globe, asking founders of tech startups key questions, including: –  –  –  –  –  Who INSPIRED you to become an entrepreneur? Where were you EMPLOYED before becoming an entrepreneur? Who INVESTED in your company? Who MENTORED you as you built your company? Have you FOUNDED any additional companies? •  They capture the results in diagrams that depict the DNA of communities and its multiplier effect. 5 MAR 2014 | PAGE16
  17. 17. The Multiplier Effect 5 MAR 2014 | PAGE17
  18. 18. The Multiplier Effect •  Data gathering is expected to be complete by January •  So far 700+ companies connect to one another and preliminary data is challenging conventional wisdom within sector… SOURCE: Endeavor Global 5 MAR 2014 | PAGE18
  19. 19. Core Questions •  DoubleClick employees founded more than 20 companies in NYC tech, and account for more than 30 CEOs in the city •  From which universities do NYC Tech founders graduate? •  What is the longest chain of connections in NYC Tech? It’s 8 companies long in Buenos Aires. •  How many entrepreneurs have the most inspirational community members inspired? •  Which are the most influential companies/organizations? •  How many “generations” until the tech ecosystem is largely self-sustaining in terms of human resources? SOURCE: Endeavor Global 5 MAR 2014 | PAGE19
  20. 20. Conclusions •  The NYC Tech community has catapulted to a leading entrepreneurial center in only 7 years •  Massive M&A exits, established leaders across multiple sectors, combined with strong growing IPO pipeline position NYC well •  No dispute that NYC has arrived if in 24-36 months: –  Talent: Multiplier effect continues to grow exponentially –  Funding: Remains consistently #2 or #3 for venture capital in US –  Exits: Cohort on runway yields 2-3 multi $B public companies 5 MAR 2014 | PAGE20
