As of yesterday Tech and the City: The Making of New York’s Startup Community is out on Kindle at a special introductory price.  For less than a Grande Latte you can get what we think is a fun read and the basis of a conversation on the New York startup ecosystems that we would like to continue on this blog.

For those of you who are thinking of entrepreneurial ideas, wherever you may be, we hope this book can inspire you via the many stories of entrepreneurs who have gone off on their own and started companies.

And for those of you who plan to be entrepreneurs in New York, we hope this book can provide you with useful information and make starting a business in NYC a little less overwhelming.

Have a good read and thank you.
