Tech.Co's Celebrate 2015 is just around the corner – a celebration of all things startup that will include mentor sessions, inspiring keynotes, workshops, and our Startup of the Year Competition. All year long, we've hit cities like Tampa, FL; San Francisco, CA; and Boston, MA; meeting with each startup ecosystem's members, entrepreneurs, and investors, while adding to our list of Celebrate 2015 semifinalists. This time around, we turn our focus to New York City – the city of dreams; the city of high achievers; the city that Jay-Z raps about!

In order to discover the world's best early-stage businesses, we invite our online readers to vote for their favorite by selecting their favorite startups in our regional online polls. Often compared to Silicon Valley – due to its sheer size and access to resources – New York City offers a local tech ecosystem as unique as its melting pot population. While it certainly shows no apparent lacking of fashion tech and finance tech startups, the NYC startup ecosystem also offers some surprises (like the growing movement of food startups slowly transforming the food industry). New York City remains (and will continue to remain) one of the top tech ecosystems for several reasons, and the companies that come from it are no less impressive.

So, tell us: which of these products from these companies would you buy, invest in, or seem most like to succeed? The winning companies in the poll will join us in Las Vegas, NV this October 4-6, where they will be exposed to dozens of investors, potential mentors and customers, and hundreds of startup enthusiasts. Additionally, the semifinalists will be eligible for prizes and awards from Tech Wildcatters, 500Startups, CEA, Crowdfunder, Techstars, American Airlines, and more!
