NYC GovUp Round Up: Empire State of GovLoop

Last night the GovUp New England tour rolled into NYC for its 11th stop. 65+ rockstars gathered at Los Feliz, three flights down below the city that never sleeps. We had a mix from New York State Senate, the City of New York, State Insurance, peeps from Columbia, Penn, and NYU, GSA, Bloomberg…

Stephen Goldsmith, Deputy Mayor of New York City for Operations and Andrew Hoppin, CIO, New York State Senate gave awesome talks on co-creating public service, being more transparent and collaborative, open data, and procurement reform. Check out Stephen’s recent awesome book on The Power of Social Innovation

The room was packed…

Everyone had a great time, and of course, we all left with Jay-Z ringing in our ears…

One hand in the air for the big city
Street lights, big dreams all looking pretty
No place in the world that can compare
Put your lighters in the air, everybody say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Come on, come on)

In New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made, oh
There’s nothing you can’t do, now you’re in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you, let’s hear it for New York
New York, New York
