Get ready Silicon Valley, New York City is coming for you. According to The New York Times, the tech sector in New York City is growing faster than any other place in the nation. This proclamation is based on a study from the Center for an Urban Future, which found that 486 tech companies had been started in the city since 2007. That was enough to move us ahead of Boston, which previously held the number two spot.
The studies authors said one reason tech outfits are coming here is because there are already so many finance and advertising firms in the city, and they’re looking for ways to creatively use mobile app technology.
Whatever the reason is, we’ll take it. Now we have yet another way to make fun of Bostoners.
