Mike Bloomberg worked to position New York City to become the global capital of technological innovation. From 2007-2012, jobs in the City’s tech sector grew by 74 percent, making the City second only to Silicon Valley in venture capital funding for tech startups. The unprecedented Applied Sciences NYC initiative will mean even more investment and jobs in the years ahead.
