Startup Guide New York

New York is not only home to one of the most diverse and creative startup ecosystems across the globe, it’s also leading the way as a great place for female founders.

Paperback + Digital




New York City has one of the most diverse and creative startup ecosystems in the world. The Big Apple took the number two spot across the USA for the amount of its VC deals in 2017, according to a CB Insights PwC MoneyTree report.


In our very first book featuring an American city, Startup Guide New York cuts through the clutter to give you basic city essentials, practical startup info, insightful tips and in-depth interviews with the movers and shakers in NYC. It’s also filled with startups, coworking spaces, programs, schools and investors in the local ecosystem.


*As part of our partnership with One Tree Planted, the purchase of the paperback copy of this guidebook (or any of our other guidebooks) contributes toward the planting of a tree.

The city motivates you. It’s a motivator of its own. Even if you take away the people – obviously the people are on their grind – there is greatness everywhere, and you want to be a part of that.
