NYC Mayor de Blasio Launches Digital.NYC With Help From PivotDesk

PivotDesk Selected to Partner With Digital.NYC to Help Build NYC's Tech Ecosystem

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2014) - Today, PivotDesk announced it was selected by Mayor de Blasio to help launch Digital.NYC, an online platform that will serve as a centralized hub for the city's tech ecosystem. As part of the release, Digital.NYC has incorporated access to local shared office space postings via the PivotDesk API. This partnership presents entrepreneurs and dynamic businesses in NYC with office sharing solutions that are more applicable for their stage of growth than a traditional lease.

"For the NYC tech world to continue to grow and succeed, there has to be flexibility in the real estate market. That's where we come in," said David Mandell, co-founder and CEO of PivotDesk. "PivotDesk is a platform that finds office space for a business at any stage in their growth -- without forcing them to take a risk on a traditional, long-term lease. By partnering with Digital.NYC, we've made our resources available to NYC companies who are looking for flexible, fluid office space in the tech world and beyond. And really, that's what it's all about. Supporting each other, spreading knowledge, and growing this amazing community."

Digital.NYC provides information and resources to help turn ideas into businesses, deliver valuable tools for digital startups, and connect New Yorkers to opportunities in the City's tech ecosystem. Digital.NYC offers a pioneering search portal and database with profiles of virtually every city-based tech company and investor; a continuously updated list of tech and digital job openings, a citywide tech event and class calendar; an interactive map of tech companies, startup resources across the boroughs; and additional features that combine to create a comprehensive one-stop shop for everything startup-related in New York City.

In a statement from the mayor's office, Mayor Bill de Blasio said, "Technology is driving innovation across New York City's industries -- from fashion to finance to manufacturing, making it more necessary than ever for the City's digital community to have a central platform. We are proud to launch Digital.NYC, a ground-breaking resource that will seamlessly connect members of the City's tech hub to training, jobs, and funding and make our city's digital economy accessible to all New Yorkers."
