Re: Positive outlook
It's also interesting that affordable real estate is mentioned. Obviously, NYC and San Francisco have some of the most expensive real estate in the world. But the number of co-work spaces that have sprung up -- especially in Manhattan -- should make finding office space more affordable for start ups.

Positive outlook
Interesting research here; it's good to see a positive outlook for New York's tech scene. The problem of attracting talent seems to be a theme throughout all sectors of financial services technology, but hopefully the opportunity to work with big industry players will prove appealing to New York's tech-savvy job candidates.
