Key Reasons for Investment

Over the last decade, the City has rapidly become one of the most innovative technology centers in the world. New York City companies received $4.6 billion in venture capital funding in 2014, up from $2.4 billion in 2011—a 91% increase that has contributed to the growth of the City’s $125 billion technology economy. The innovation economy is comprised of a variety of fast growing industry sectors, such as engineering, advertising and design, that have greatly outpaced more traditional sectors in employment.

The City has played an active role in efforts to foster the growth of the innovation economy. Since launching in 2009, the City’s incubator network has provided over 170,000 square feet of affordable real estate to approximately 1,000 startup businesses, which in turn have raised more than $180 million in venture funding. In that same time period, venture capital (“VC”) investments in City based startups have received over $8 billion in over 1,205 transactions. Across the United States, the City is the only major geographic hub that grew its share of VC funded deals to technology startups over the past three years.
