Making Tech Work for New Yorkers

Making Tech Work for New Yorkers

Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City of New York are working to make NYC the world’s leading city for tech development.

A growing tech economy translates into more jobs for New Yorkers. A healthy startup and entrepreneurship ecosystem leads to new technologies being made in New York City. This is why we partner with agencies and organizations to deliver on the City’s vision laid out in the OneNYC plan.

 

Tech Industry Engagement

We’re proud to partner with organizations that lead tech programs designed to benefit all New Yorkers. Our office serves as the central point of contact for tech companies, startups, entrepreneurs, nonprofits and academic institutions who want to engage with government to promote technology development in New York City.

As technology ambassadors, we actively participate at local, national and global events to represent Mayor de Blasio and communicate his vision. The mission of the Chief Technology Officer’s office includes partnering with cities who also share in this vision. We are part of the Global Council of City CIOs (Chief Information Officers), a group comprised of CTOs and CIOs from cities around the world. These leaders work together to advance smart cities efforts, safeguard privacy and cybersecurity, and accelerate digitization of government.

TECH TALENT

People are at the heart of making new technologies that serve the community. Without the talent, we can’t do the work. Agencies across the City are leading programs that grow the tech sector and add more jobs to the marketplace. With the most diverse workforce in the country, New York City will continue to support and evolve a growing tech economy.

We support and partner whenever we can with these teams to expand tech careers, workforce education and training opportunities across New York City.
