Last week, NYI welcomed New Jersey’s hottest IT, Telecom and Mobile startups as part of New Jersey Tech Council’s sixth-annual Innovation Competition.
The event took place Thursday, Oct. 4 at NYI Bridgewater, NYI’s 40,000 square foot facility in Bridgewater, New Jersey, approximately 40 miles from New York City. As in previous years, the event attracted a healthy mix of venture capitalists, technologists, analysts and entrepreneurs.

“We are proud to be at the center of such innovation,” said Phillip Koblence, VP Operations, NYI. “We have forged a special relationship with the New York Area tech startup community, having fostered so many early-stage companies over the rough spots along the path to excellence. It’s is for that reason that it is our pleasure to host this event for the fourth straight year, where we salute innovation and celebrate tomorrow’s leaders.”
