Over the last few years, and driven by an amazing array of people, the NY technology sector (i.e., technology companies as well as digital media, interactive agencies, VCs, and startups, along with various professional service firms that work with these companies) has exploded. New York is now a legitimate tech capital. Yet Sandy has delivered a serious blow to our home city - the city where we've chosen to build, code, and grow our businesses.
As proven by the tremendous collaboration and grassroots cooperation across different people and organizations in the wake Sandy, we are a resilient city and the NY tech community has stepped up to help drive recovery. But there is still so much more for us to do - both to recover now and to prepare before the next disaster hits. NYC has given us much -- we now must give back.
December 1 and 2 is our #NYTechResponds Sandy Benefit Weekend: Hackathon, Relief Agency Conference & Fundraiser benefit. See schedule page for details on our agenda.
