Mayor Michael Bloomberg, in collaboration with Chief Digital Officer Rachel Sterne and Internet Week New York Chairman David Michel-Davies, have officially revealed an interactive guide to NYC's tech start-ups, called the "Made in NY" Digital Jobs Map. The guide will help both job seekers, and start up tech companies, by conveniently linking them to one another across the five boroughs.
The map already plots over 500 digital NYC companies, and will undoubtedly help the already progressive NYC digital industry prosper.
“New York City is the place to be if you’re a growing tech startup,” said Mayor Bloomberg. “Our tech companies are looking for talent, and we want to make sure that everyone – no matter where they live today – knows about these jobs and is able to apply for them.”
The map will be a useful resource for growing businesses, and will inevitably attract even more hopeful entrepreneurs to launch start-ups in NYC. As for job seekers, the map will provide a diverse selection of potential employers. The utility will allow tech companies to more easily locate researchers, engineers, designers, and developers, and vice-versa. It's a win-win situation. The Digital Jobs Map is definitely a step in the right direction toward Mayor Bloomberg's ultimate goal of making NYC the tech capital of the world.
