The Gallery


New York City’s tech renaissance is underway, fueling disruption in NYC’s diverse industries, while drawing inspiration from the City’s ambitious culture and vibrant community. The result is a unique melting pot of fresh startups and storied giants, open innovation and fast-paced competition, creative Makers and clever Hackers.

We couldn’t think of a better place to highlight some of our homegrown talent than at the 2013 CE Week. Together with the New York City Economic Development Corporation, we’ve created a curated area of the show floor for the NYC Startup Pavilion. Come and see 20 of NYC’s most interesting and exciting new CE related startups, and then stay and network or just hang out in the Made in NY Lounge, sponsored by NYC Digital.
