My report of visit to Newyork City, the most global city of the world.I want to share my experience of first week in New York .
After spending 9 months in Budapest I feel newyork home away from home as I have seen many Indians. New york truly a global city you can see people from every part of the world. New York exerts a significant impact upon commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment. Around 800 languages are spoken in New York making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world.
This city really inspires me to think,aim and achive big in life. The sky scrappers and lifestyle gives me a motivation to stay hungary in life.
First day we have speakers Alejandro and Brain who gives great perspective about newyork eco system and business in Newyork . I learned how after 2008 recession Newyork invested in incubators for innovations and about transition of newyork economy from finance to Innovation. Form all this I learned very important lesson “show must go on”. Second day Alejandro and Brain covers the topic how entrepreneur can manage the business in newyork and global market with some interesting exercises and case study which enable us to apply our learnings from the class. I love the way they taught us with full of motivation and energy.
We have visit to Newyork University where Guest speaker gives insight on CUSP program about Urban Infomatics and how data can be useful to form the strategies and planning for the planned cities as in few years most of the world population live in cities.

I think its a great initiative by Newyork university and also feeling very happy that IIT Bombay is also the part of this program.
