This week the New Venture Capital Association (NYVCA) hosted its 4th annual INGENUITY Conference, putting a spotlight on the city’s vibrant startup scene. Chris Fralic, the Ingenuity’s co-chair and partner at First Round Capital, first round capital, stated in his introductory remarks that today’s question is not whether you can build a tech company and hire enough engineers in New York. Looking at the successful tech startups in New York, the question has shifted to whether you can build a company as big as Facebook in New York City.
To showcase some of New York’s finest tech startups, NYVCA had vetted hundreds of applications from New York startups prior to the conference and had selected 16 lucky companies to present their business strategy at the event.
