NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg has launched a new initiative called “We are Made in NY” in order to support the growing local tech scene. The initiative will provide resources to help startups grow, highlight openings at tech startups, and help introduce people into the industry.

Bloomberg also announced a print and digital ad campaign that will feature employees of tech companies that have been certified by Made in NY, a list that thus far  consists of over 900 tech and digital companies. Companies can even submit 60 second videos revealing what it’s like to be a NY-based tech or digital media startup.
