Our History

Ny Enterprise Tech Meetup

NY Tech Alliance was created through the merger of NY Tech Meetup and the New York Technology Council. NY Tech Meetup was first founded as a Meetup group in 2004, with the organization becoming an independent non-profit in 2010. The New York Technology Council was founded in 2009 as a non-profit organization focused on developing and promoting the technology industry in New York City. The two organizations then merged together in 2016 to form the NY Tech Alliance. Today, the organization has over 60,000 individual and institutional members, reflecting the full spectrum of the greater New York area tech community and making it the largest tech organization in the region.
