The NYC Tech Connect Mission
NYC Tech Connect launched in January 2011 as a public-private partnership funded jointly by the New York City Investment Fund, the Partnership for New York City and the New York City Council. Our mission is to foster the development of a stronger entrepreneurial ecosystem in NYC in the hard sciences (including bioscience and cleantech). Through collaboration with Universities and other strategic partners, NYC Tech Connect provides programs, expertise and resources designed to accelerate the development of entrepreneurs and their resulting technology startups.
Our team is Shari Ford, Executive Director, an experienced entrepreneur and corporate executive. Melinda Thomas, Entrepreneur In Residence for New York City, focused on bioscience.
