Work-Bench Snapshot: Augmenting Streaming and Batch Processing Workflows
The Work-Bench Snapshot Series explores the top people, blogs, videos, and more, shaping the enterprise on a particular topic we’re looking at from an investment standpoint.
We’ve been investing in enterprise tech startups since our launch in 2013 and for the past several years, we’ve been tracking our local NYC enterprise ecosystem’s growth.
While the world faced an unprecedented global health pandemic and economic crisis in 2020, digital transformation took a front seat in the enterprise and enterprise software startups have been a key enabler of this transformation. Now all signs clearly demonstrate that despite COVID-19, 2020 was the best year yet for enterprise tech in NYC 🔥🔥🔥
Some key findings:
What’s exciting is that we no longer need to discuss NYC enterprise tech in relation to Silicon Valley. Rather, NYC is the clear #2 enterprise tech ecosystem in the US, and with strengths in our own right (eg. the ability for startups to build alongside their Fortune 500 customers), we’re positioned for an exciting decade to come.
PS — If you’d like to check out the underlying data for yourself, check out our public NYC Enterprise Funding Database. The database records every single financing from 2014–2020 for NYC enterprise startups, and for each financing we include the company name, amount raised, and the funding round.
