About this Event
Join us for our next event as we explore the evolving NYC manufacturing and supply chain logistics ecosystem and how emerging technologies are helping to make manufacturing more accessible to small businesses and startups. Lite food, beverages and wine to be served.
"Crain’s recently reported two statistics that seem unrelated but taken together say something significant about New York City’s future as an engine of opportunity, innovation, and equity. The first was that manufacturing lost more jobs than initially estimated and now accounts for only 69,000 jobs in the city, or 1.5% of the total. The second was that information jobs grew by 6% to about 200,000. The combination of a shrinking manufacturing sector and a growing information economy has had a profound impact on New York and cities across the U.S.—driving diverging narratives of opportunity and stagnation. Is this bifurcation permanent? Only if we continue to think of tech and manufacturing as separate and unequal sectors rather than as synergistic drivers of a new economy for people of all skillsets." -- Matthew Putman (Manufacturing is Not Dead; Here's the Blueprint, CRAINS June, 2019)
How is manufacturing and the supply chain changing in NYC and where are the opportunities? How can we ensure that, as we automate manufacturing, we don't leave people (and small business owners) behind? What is "design for manufacturing" (DFM) and how can product developers and businesses use new technologies to speed up and significantly improve the design-to-manufacturing process?
The city is changing tremendously and quickly right before our eyes. We'll explore the intersection of technology and manufacturing and hopefully outline the framework for answering these difficult questions as well as how entrepreneurs and can not only use emerging technology to become a part of New York's manufacturing ecosystem, but how they, in partnership with city and private organizations, can redefine the manufacturing landscape to be more diverse and inclusive than ever before.
