Tech’s Implications on the NYC Economy


HR&A Partner, Shuprotim Bhaumik, speaks at the at the Women Executives in Real Estate Breakfast


Women Executives in Real Estate (WX) is an invitation-only association of executive-level women actively engaged in the commercial real estate industry in New York. WX’s diverse membership includes owners, developers, brokers, architects, engineers, bankers and lawyers.


On May 7, 2015, Shuprotim Bhaumik will moderate a panel discussing the state of the NYC tech ecosystem. While firms in the finance and professional services industries continue to comprise the largest share of the New York City economy and commercial office leasing market, tech and innovation firms have experienced rapid growth over the last decade. A recent study conducted by HR&A Advisors for the Association for a Better New York concluded that the New York City tech ecosystem is large and growing larger, and generates significant economic impact and opportunities for all New Yorkers. Shuprotim, who worked on the study on behalf of HR&A, will discuss the report’s findings and how they are being incorporated into the City’s workforce development strategy to offer substantive public policy direction for nurturing the future success of the ecosystem, and by extension, New York City itself.
