NYC’s Smallbiz, By The Numbers

Where are New York City’s startups?
If you follow the money, says entrepreneur Brad Hargreaves, you can find them.

Out of 800+ venture capital financings since 2005, much of the money is being poured into Midtown. (The size of the dot represents the amount of money; the color of the dot supposedly represents the number of discrete transactions, but your guess is as good as ours which color is which.)

There’s also a lot of love going to Brooklyn, specifically Cobble Hill, DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights, and everyone else in 11201.

One thing to note: these dots represent $3.1 billion in money.
And at least some of these startups are going to need PR, advertising, and/or design folk.

Murray Hill here we come!
