This will be the final post of Startup in the City. It has been a spectacular experience putting this simple initiative together: briefly highlight the incredible initiative, talent, and foresight of local entrepreneurs every day.
Since SITC began, startups profiled here have been acquired (Stamped, Fondu), raised new rounds of funding (Betterment, Songza, Dataminr), been absorbed (News.me, Onepager) and continued to produce amazing products and services. All in about 6 months!
Hopefully this continues to serve as a resource for those curious to learn more about what’s happening inside the NYC startup scene. It will continue to stand as an unfailing flag of support for founders, doers, and makers.
I’d encourage others to take on similar blogs/publications, perhaps even focused outside of New York City. I’ve learned so much through the process of keeping an open eye and ear to the fantastic businesses being built around me. I will be moving on to pursue other projects along these lines.
Cheers to you, and be in touch.
