Howard Milstein Discusses New York City’s Future as a Technology Center in ‘Leaders’ Magazine

October 15th, 2014

Howard Milstein was interviewed by Leaders, a magazine that presents the broad range of leadership thoughts and visions of the world’s most influential people, about New York City’s tech sector and his personal involvement in creating and nurturing high-tech companies. In the interview, Howard shares his thinking on developing online banking and wealth management companies, as well as the tech accelerator that he and his son, Michael, have launched to “foster a high-tech community in Midtown Manhattan.”

Howard also discusses why New York City is an excellent location for technology companies. “New York has always been a center of innovation and intellectual leadership, especially in areas such as technology, media, financial services, and medical research,” Howard says. “This is a big reason why New York offers tech companies advantages no other city in the world can match. Consider, for example, companies developing solutions for enterprise keyed to big data, analytics, and unlocking efficiencies in industries such as media, education, healthcare, energy, and financial services. Many, if not most, of the customers these start-ups serve have offices right here in New York. This provides enormous opportunities for developing relationships, mentoring, and other forms of intellectual and economic support.”
