About an hour ago, Mayor Bloomberg gave a press conference at BuzzFeed HQ to announce that he was extending the “We Are Made in NY” campaign, previously used for NYC films and television productions, to manufacturing and tech companies as well.
The first half hour of the video is just pre-conference setup, so I’ve cued it up to 33 minutes in, where the Mayor begins speaking about the new initiative.
In tandem with this announcement is the new We Are Made In NY website, which has job info and a list of tech companies in NYC. We’re proud to be on this list, along with our friends at MakerBot and littleBits, and all the other great firms that call NYC home.
