Digital Entrepreneurs 2.0
Tuesday, 16th March 2010
Lincoln Center Campus
New York City, home to media giants, is becoming a launching pad for hundreds of Internet start-ups, particularly in the field of social media. Twitter was “inspired by my time in New York,” says co-founder Jack Dorsey. Today’s digital lanuches cost less than most brick-and-mortar startups, technology is more accessible and cheaper than ever before, and the city government of New York is offering cut-rate office space to promising young firms. Learn how these go-getters turned their digital dreams into successful realities.
