This all encompassing guide to NYC tech will reveal just how large and diverse NYC tech community has become and why it's has become a true digital leader and pioneer. To provide a complete picture of the landscape I've included many topics including trends, startups by sector, angel and venture investors, service providers, educational institutions, strategic partners, news and information, community, and many more. My goal of this guide is to raise awareness of the NYC tech ecosystem and help newcomers and veterans navigate the ever changing landscape here. Any and all feedback is welcome so feel free to email me at schlaf55@gmail.com and I'll do my best to incorporate your suggestions. Thank you.
