Entrepreneurship Wisdom from a Columbia Expert

Steve Blank, Senior Fellow for Entrepreneurship at Columbia, will speak on January 12 on "Hacking NYC: Beyond the Rise of the NYC Startup Ecosystem." 

The current state of New York City's entrepreneurship ecosystem is widely considered a modern marvel.

Blank, along with Executive Director, Columbia Technology Ventures Orin Herskowitz, will discuss how much of this success can be attributed to former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, how has this progress evolved under Mayor Bill de Blasio, and how NYC compares to other startup hotspots including Silicon Valley, Boston, and Tel Aviv.
