27 Apr Brooklyn’s “Tech Triangle” A Real Draw For Startups
NY1 reports on the Tech Triangle and profiles one of the companies that’s part of the city’s booming tech industry. HUGE is a digital agency based in DUMBO that started in 1999 with just two designers. It now has 400 employees in its Brooklyn office serving clients like Target and Pepsi, and in the past two years alone has doubled in size. With hundreds of tech, creative and digital firms calling DUMBO home, there’s now a push to expand as these companies continue to grow.
A recent survey conducted by the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership, the DUMBO Improvement District, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation finds that Brooklynites make up more than half of the tech work force citywide, and that most would prefer to work in the Tech Triangle.
