“New York City has a storied entrepreneurial history. We are home to the country’s most diverse urban population, several of the world’s leading engineering universities, and the largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies. That’s a unique combination within the tech industry, and one that we believe will be increasingly attractive to founders from around the globe, both as a place to start their companies and also as a logical place to plant a first flag in the United States.”
