PKPR worked with the NYC Mayor’s Office on coordinating a major press conference on May 15th at Internet Week New York Headquarters where Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Chief Digital Officer Rachel Sterne and Internet Week New York Chairman David-Michel Davies unveiled the “Made in NY” Digital Jobs Map, an interactive guide to the City’s startups, investors, incubators, and coworking spaces, including over 325 digital companies that are currently hiring for thousands of jobs.
Created by Internet Week New York in partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment and the New York City Economic Development Corporation, the Made in NY Digital Map already plots more than 500 digital companies across the five boroughs. The map offers direct links to the companies’ jobs listings pages and pinpoints the city’s hottest tech hubs, from the Flatiron District to DUMBO.
Over 30 media outlets attended the press conference, resulting in coverage in the New York Times, New York Post, Fast Company, TechCrunch, Mashable, Huffington Post, The Next Web, Crain’s New York Business, BetaBeat, VentureBeat, NY1, WABC, Portfolio, DNAinfo, and The Epoch Times.
