In the world of 21st century technology, we’re always thinking about how we can use advancements to change and better our lives. Some of the most advanced uses of our tech fall in the field of biotechnology, where scientists use living systems and organisms to make products. Biotech can include everything from agriculture, to medicine, to gene therapy. It’s not rocket science, but it’s complex and intense work.
Are you interested in changing the world through biology? If you are, check out these four biotech startups in New York City.
The San Francisco Bay area is well-known as the home of disruptive software, where great ideas go from being merely side projects to launching into giant multi-billion dollar companies. It’s where we all look to for the next Google, Apple, Amazon, or Uber to emerge with the next world-changing idea. But get ready tech bros, the science kids are here. Biotech companies are realizing the value of integrating newer technologies with traditional platforms to create a whole new mix of artificial intelligence, genetic tracking, and augmented healthcare.
Determining the right startup to join doesn't need to be difficult -- sometimes all you need to do is follow the money. These 6 NYC startups recently raised Series A funding, meaning they're well on their way to expanding and growing quickly. Check ‘em out:
In this interview series, we ask companies we love working with to give us some insight into what they’re all about. They’ll share how the company got started, what it's like to work there, and what makes them different. It’s your inside look to some of the coolest startups.
Today we’re featuring Toby Stein, who’s VP of Operations at one of our partner companies Amino Apps.
The job hunt is about as tough as it gets. When you’re looking, and I mean really looking for that next opportunity, you have maybe just one chance to woo the hiring manager before your candidacy gets tossed into the digital Recycle Bin.
That means you need to up your game and make sure that you’re gonna give the hiring manager as many reasons to want to hire you, as well as remove all the reasons why they wouldn’t. We’re in a game where a simple typo could cost you a great new job. The misplacement of a single word could leave an unintended negative impression. And we want to help you get that job, so here’s a little something to address those mistakes:
Puppies are literally the best. Our office is full of people who would much rather talk to dogs than humans -- the type of people who’d make a beeline for pups on the street, eager to make a new pupper friend, while (totally unintentionally) ignoring their owners. I mean, we like people too, but doggos are. the. best. We’re like putty in their hands (paws?). They can poop in the conference room, and we’ll always forgive them because they’re full of cuddles and cuteness and unconditional love. And on National Dog Day, we’d like to take a moment to appreciate our furry best friends.
Finding a job is not an easy task- and that can go extra for startups. With online applications at an all-time high, hiring managers are seeing hundreds of resumes, so standing out can be difficult. Add that to the fact that most of them glance at a resume for an average of 6 seconds, and pretty soon, the job hunt is gonna start feeling pretty bleak.
The right job. You might think it’s an elusive dream. You’ve heard about friends and family who have found the right job, but you’re still struggling to find the perfect fit. You’ve been on some interviews and you finally have a job offer. But how do you know if you’ve found the right one? Here are a few signs that suggest that this gig is the one you’ve been looking for.
South by Southwest 2018 (or SXSW as it’s so lovingly abbreviated) is well underway this year, with companies from all over the world – ranging from film and music to interactive media and brand new startups jumping into the scene.

With startup attire giving the traditional suit and tie a run for its money, a business casual look at the office can’t hurt. Having such a wide breadth of options for work wear can be incredibly daunting –– while jeans and a tee may pass with your laid-back colleagues, it’s wise to level up your wardrobe and dress for the role you want, not the one you have.

The early 2000’s were a strange time for music. The technological melting pot of mass internet availability, digitization of music, and the invention of the iPod led us all to think that maybe the music business was being dealt its final blow. CD sales dropped as more and more people began to buy their music online, and even those numbers were dwarfed with the invention of streaming services like Spotify and Pandora. Things looked pretty bleak for the music industry.

Ahh, New York City. The City That Never Sleeps. We love this beautiful, hectic, crazy city. We love the bustle and the towering buildings and the colorful personalities we see on the subway every morning.
