Every tech hub has its own recipe for success. New York has a unique tech scene that has grown rapidly since the the late 1990s. Following the Dotcom Crash in 2001, NYC entrepreneurs in finance, fashion, media, advertising and other information-centric fields took advantage of the precipitous drop in the cost of web services, allowing the Tri-State startup economy to thrive.

We spoke with leaders in the New York City tech community to learn what’s feeding the local startup revolution -- and more importantly, what should keep it sustainable for years to come.
