Whether you’re just about to start a company or you’re hoping to expand, setting up shop in New York City may be the best logical step for you and your company. Or, maybe, you’re at a point during which your location decision comes down to either Silicon Valley or Silicon Alley. Whatever the case, it’s important that you, as a founder, know as much about the New York startup ecosystem before fully committing to planting roots in the city. Thankfully, there’s now a handy infographic that gives founders (and potential founders) a general yet informative overview of the New York startup scene.

When it comes to resources, community, and funding, the New York startup economy comes in second behind Silicon Valley – this is a widely-known fact. With city-backed initiatives like Digital.NYC which aim to provide the city’s tech sector and greater local economy with the resources to help accelerate growth, and organically-developed organizations like New York Tech Meetup that unify the whole startup economy, a decision to startup in NYC essentially becomes a decision to become part of the economical history of our modern tech renaissance.

In the infographic below, you’ll find the most recent stats on the state of venture capital in NYC, the names of prominent accelerators and tech-focused organizations in the city, and even a list of some food hangout spots recommended by New York startup leaders. Here’s the infographic on a founder’s guide to the New York startup scene:
