New York City is a technology hotbed with a thriving culture of entrepreneurship. Silicon Alley is at the forefront of new technology, not just as it relates to the finance industry, but all other industry as well.
At the forefront of this movement are hundreds of individuals outside the mainstream with the potential to create or contribute meaningfully to the “Next Big Thing”. These trailblazers are the reason Silicon Alley has risen to challenge the West Coast tech enclave as the number two VC- and Angel-funding spot in the country.
Lauren Keyson’s latest book is a take on the nature of disruptive technologists. Who are these people and what drives them? What makes the world of New York’s Disruptive Technologists? In this book, you will get inside their heads and gain insight and understanding into how they formulate their ideas, dreams, and what skills serve them on the path to success.

This book will give you the insight you are looking for that might just make your idea the next big disruption.
