New York City is setting the stage for urban efficiency, sustainability and innovation. Through a competitive selection process, the World to NYC – Global Industry Challenge program will bring the most promising companies from around the world to NYC to present their solutions in the context of continuous urbanization and its economic opportunities for New York City’s citizens, businesses, and beyond.
Participants will engage in fireside chats and roundtable discussions with local founders and CEOs, company site visits, tours, and community events. Delegates will have plenty of opportunities to present and pitch their companies and pick up valuable advice on how to make it in NYC – personally as well as on a business level. In addition to this, participants will gain practical insights on expanding business operations in the US (tax, legal, accounting, immigration, staffing, etc.) through interactive discussions and workshops.
Companies will be at the cutting edge of their field and be able to contribute a new perspective to NYC. Applicants that demonstrate a serious intention to enter the NYC market will be afforded priority.
While we welcome interest from any company focusing on the application of technology to urban sustainability, the following sectors are of particular interest:
Only the brightest up-and-coming stars will be chosen. We welcome companies from any country around the globe to apply.
