Our CEO Tony Haile had the pleasure of sharing his thoughts with Alley Watch about Made in NY™ this morning. Made in NY™ is a favorite initiative at Chartbeat since we love all things digital, we're lucky enough to partner with a whole bunch of New York media folks, and heck, we love New York City. A lot. Tony discussed things like getting a larger funnel of engineers into New York City, the perks of a thriving tech community, and how Chartbeat's values align with Made in NY™'s push for collaboration and open dialogue in the local digital and media industries. Check out the full interview at Alley Watch, and enjoy the excerpt below: What does “Made in NY™” mean to you and your company? For Chartbeat, it means unparalleled opportunities to build the best products for the most successful industries.  New York is a media town.  This city was built by creative doers- writers, artists, publishers, advertisers, and Chartbeat is lucky enough to partner with them to make their jobs a little easier, a little better. What can be done to maximize the “Made in NY™” campaign? The New York digital community is interconnected, but sometimes tech communities can seem insular in communicating its value and significance to those without a CS degree or startups on their resume.  What’s so great about NY over other tech communities is that we have an incredibly welcoming community; we understand that it’s not about building something for a newsworthy exit, but to really help others accomplish something they couldn’t before.
