Today the teams heard from Charles Brun, CEO and Co-Founder of Now In Store about the tech scene in New York City. Charles was in the 4th FounderFuel Cohort and was able to give valuable insights as to what #NYCTech has to offer. Here are some of the things he found best about the community.
Driven and Fast Paced – It takes a 24/7 work ethic to build something meaningful and valuable, and this mantra is strong in New York.
Welcoming – People that are new to tech can integrate quickly, and those new to the NYC Tech scene are welcomed with open arms.
Collaborative – There is a continuous sharing of ideas networks, deals, and more. Everyone is willing to share their own experiences which helps the community continue to grow at a rapid rate.
Open – The community is very accessible via meet ups, twitter, and blogs and other resources. There are also a number of coffee shops that provide good opportunities for networking.
Diverse – There are many large industries in town, but tech is involved in every single one.
Innovative – Many advancements exist from corporations, startups, and makers.
