Here are some key facts about New York:

  • In 2012, 100 New York City tech firms sold for a total price of $8.3 billion, while venture capitalists injected $2 billion into the city’s tech companies across funding types, including $115 million in Seed funding, $467 million in Series A funding and $449 million in Series B funding. And in May of 2013, New York City witnessed its first billion dollar exit of a tech startup with Tumblr’s acquisition by Yahoo! – the first of several major deals further fueling the tremendous growth of the sector and providing new opportunities for investment and expanding employment opportunities for the city’s growing number of engineering graduates.
  • Tech sector growth and city support is helping to create tech jobs across New York City. Between 2009 and 2011, high-tech sector employment grew at a cumulative rate of more than 15%. In 2011 New York City employed almost 123,000 total tech workers and currently more than 1,200 local startups are hiring for more than 3,000 jobs.
  • Employment in the Health Care and Social Assistance sector increased by 7,050 between 2011 and 2012 in boroughs outside Manhattan. This increase represented 20.9 percent of all jobs gained in these four boroughs. Accommodation and food services and retail trade continue to be strong employment drivers outside Manhattan. Employment increased by 6,040 and 5,390 in the two sectors, respectively. Arts, entertainment and recreation added the most jobs as a share of total in the boroughs other than Manhattan, rising by 15.5 percent since 2011.
  • More than 1,000 new start-ups have launched in New York City since 2008. Some found an early home in New York City’s network of 10 City-sponsored incubators. These incubators have provided space and resources to more than 650 companies and support more than 1,000 employees; with five new City-sponsored incubators on the way.
  • Applied Sciences NYC is expected to more than double the number of both full-time graduate engineering students and faculty in New York City. Over the next three decades the Applied Sciences NYC initiative is expected to generate more than $33 billion in overall nominal economic impact, add more than 48,000 jobs, and launch nearly 1,000 spin-off companies.
  • In 2012, Manhattan was home to 60.5 percent of the city’s total private jobs, followed by Brooklyn and Queens with 15.1 percent each. Manhattan had more than half (52.8 percent) of the city’s private establishments in 2002, but by 2012, the other four boroughs combined had a slim majority of city establishments (50.6 percent).
  • Manhattan’s greater share of jobs relative to establishments implies that its businesses are larger on average than those in other boroughs. But almost 89,000 Manhattan businesses, or 85.7 percent, still employed fewer than 20 people in 2011, according to the U.S. Census Bureau County Business Patterns. Brooklyn had the highest share of businesses employing fewer than 20 people, at 92.1 percent of the total.
