City Wants Your Input on Office Space + BigApps

Two new surveys from the New York City Economic Development Corporation will help shape city policy and activity over the next year.

Office Space: NYCEDC wants to know how the City’s current stock of office space aligns with the demands of emerging and high-growth companies. The aim? Ensure NYC is poised to meet the future space needs of the City’s rapidly growing sectors. If you occupy or are looking for high-quality affordable office space (that is, mostly Class B and C office space), share your feedback via this short survey.

BigApps: NYCEDC’s NYC BigApps is a data software competition  for individuals or companies to develop online and mobile applications that utilize official City datasets. While official rules and regs haven’t been released, NYC BigApps 2013 will focus on leveraging technology to help solve NYC’s key challenges, like incombe mobility, workforce support, or transit. What topics should BigApps tackle this year? Weigh in via this short survey.
