We all know that Silicon Valley as the hotbed of innovation that many countries and cities around the world have tried to replicate (and mostly failed). What some may not realize is that the startup scenes in other parts of the United States – New York, Chicago, Austin – has been seeing plenty of excitement in recent years.
In particular, New York has been seeing plenty of startups emerge and blossom, and the city is now known (somewhat jokingly) as “Silicon Alley”. Much of it has been down to great support from local government – including Mayor Michael Bloomberg – as well as the efforts from organizations such as New York Entrepreneurship Week.
