With over 8.5 million residents, dozens of Fortune 500 companies, and the second-largest startup ecosystem in the world, New York City is both the nation’s economic powerhouse and the world’s commercial capital.
To ensure the city remains a vibrant hub of business in perpetuity, New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), on behalf of the City of New York, is making public investments in industries that drive the city’s economy, including technology, life sciences and healthcare, industrial and manufacturing, and fashion.
