The Virginia Club invites you to the first-ever, U.Va. in NYC Tech Panel: Stories from the front line of a growing sector.
According to a study prepared by HR&A Advisors, the New York City tech ecosystem contains 7% of the City’s entire workforce – 291,000 workers who work in tech industries or perform tech functions for non-tech firms. The economic activity engendered by these direct jobs supports 250,000 additional jobs throughout the City’s economy, and generates $125 billion in total spending and over $5.6 billion in annual tax revenues.
Our panel will talk about what it’s like to be part of this growing sector of industry in the city, whether they’re technologists at tech companies, non-tech employees at tech firms or their job involves working with or covering those in the tech industry. And the audience? Whether you’re in the tech industry and want to network with fellow Hoos, have always wondered how to transition into this sector, or are looking to learn about the next big start-up, we look forward to having you there!
