Through a competitive selection process, the World to NYC – Global Industry Challenge will bring 15 of the most innovative new manufacturing companies from around the world to NYC on May 12-14. While they are here each company will get an inside look into NYC’s manufacturing-tech ecosystem and will begin to build partnerships with local and national firms.
During this three-day event participants will connect with large and small stakeholders in the new manufacturing area.
In order to choose only the most promising startups in the industry, World to NYC is running a challenge through March 31 where new manufacturing startups who feel they have a ground-breaking product can apply to be selected. Only the brightest up-and-coming stars in the startup world will be chosen. We welcome companies from any country around the world to apply.
The NYCEDC is the City’s primary engine for economic development charged with leveraging the City’s assets to drive growth, create jobs and improve quality of life.
