BigApps is the premier showcase of NYC’s tech ecosystem. It’s a competition that empowers New York’s sharpest minds to solve the city’s toughest challenges through technology, making NYC a better place to Live, Work, Learn, and Play. Whether you’re a hacker or a maker, a designer or an investor, a novice or a pro, we provide resources that make it easy to make a difference. Come to build. Come to network. Come to win.

NYC BigApps 2014 is an initiative of NYCEDC to promote government transparency and the creation of innovative new technologies. Following NYC BigApps 2013, this year’s event is the fifth annual run of the competition and is being managed by HR&A Advisors in collaboration with Super Vision and Splash.

Let’s solve New York’s challenges together.

BigApps is a 4-month competition that empowers the sharpest minds in tech, design, and business to solve NYC's toughest civic challenges. Whether you’re a novice or pro, a coder or a marketer, building an app, a device, or a data tool, we provide resources that make it easy to make a difference.

One mission. Many ways to win.
