The New York City tech industry is the fastest growing in the United States -- second only to Silicon Valley. It is becoming a major economic engine for the city, creating high paying jobs, promoting innovation, and strengthening other core NYC markets such as media, advertising, finance, entertainment, and health care. The policies and agenda of the next Mayor will inevitably affect the growth of the ecosystem and the rapidly expanding NYC tech industry.
Join us at the Mayoral Candidates Tech Policy forum and hear the candidates discuss topics related to technology in New York City, including tech jobs and startup companies, STEM education, and government policy. Hosted by Coalition for Queens, the discussion will be moderated by Anjali Athavaley of the Wall Street Journal and Nilay Patel of The Verge.
Confirmed candidates for the forum include:
- Former NYC Councilmember Sal Albanese
- Former Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrión, Jr.
- Former NYC Comptroller Bill Thompson
- NYC Comptroller John Liu
- Former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner
Goodniks planning to attend can submit questions they'd like to put to the candidates in advance through the web form or tweet questions to #queenstechforum.
