Putting us on the map.
We are proud to announce that Eduardo Angel LLC is now on a digital map called, Made in New York, a great resource developed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg for tech companies, investors, developers and designers. Featuring more than 500 local companies across the city’s five boroughs, including 325 that are presently hiring, the projects’s goal is to interactively show what is happening in the technology industry throughout the five boroughs.
“We expect this map to be another tool that helps propel our tech industry forward,” Bloomberg said . “The growth of the tech industry in New York City has been a critical part of weathering the nation’s economic downturn, far better than the rest of the country.” Since the map plots companies by location, job seekers can explore their desired neighborhoods, making this a fantastic resource for anyone who lives or is moving to New York City to find jobs in the technology sector. The map can be also be sorted by digital companies, investors, and co-working and incubator spaces.
“Creative people want to be around other people and creativity is driving the tech industry,” Bloomberg said. “We are making concentrated efforts to support entrepreneurs and startups.”
Additionally, Mayor Bloomberg, the Department of Small Business Services and NYC Digital, along With Google, Mashable and Tumblr have introduced a New Technology Toolkit to Help Small Local Businesses Launch and Grow Online. We believe that these new resources are increasing the visibility, as well as competitiveness for new companies to stay on top. We welcome new challenges.
