AdGrok’s Antonio Garcia-Martinez recently wrote that “New York will never be more than a tech sideshow.”
As a co-founder of New York-based tech startup Yipit, a website that aggregates daily deals from sites like Groupon and Living Social, Vinicius Vacanti sees things differently. While it was a much tougher scene for New York City tech four or five years ago, people now realise that tech startups in New York City is “a real thing and something that is to be admired.”
