VIDEO: NYC Social Infrastructure & Tech Ecosystem: Are We At An Inflection Point? @disruptivetechs

On Monday October 27 2014 the Internet Society’s New York Chapter (ISOC-NY),, and Gust, joined with the Disruptive Technologists in NYC to present NYC Social Infrastructure & Tech Ecosystem: Are We At An Inflection Point?. The financial crisis of 2008 was an inflection point where Mayor Bloomberg was widely credited for reinventing the traditional Wall Street Economy through technology entrepreneurship. Yet some criticized his success as having been more of a wealth creation model for a narrow section of the City. Are we now at a second inflection point? At the recent press conference in Dumbo to announce Digital.NYC, the City’s new hub for tech and startups, Mayor Bill De Blasio talked about his new technology initiatives. So this brings up the question: Will things get worse or will they get better? What will happen to the gains made by the Bloomberg Administration? Or will there not even be a new inflection point, and things will remain the same? What does it take to make a successful tech ecosystem?Entrepreneurs David Rose (New York Angels, and Chaz Mee (Brand Innovation Strategist) tackled these questions, ably guided by moderator Professor Bruce Bachenheimer, Director, Entrepreneurship Lab, Pace University, NYC.
