The Big Apple has made a name for itself as a home to tech start-ups. Thwapr has grown by 6 employees in the last year, and will need to fill more full-time positions going forward. The 3-year-old startup offers a patent-pending technology that delivers video to mobile phones, without the user having to download an app.
Launching a business during a recession is no cake walk, but "mobile video is one of the cutting-edge technologies that people are interested in," said Leigh Newsome, senior vice president at Thwapr and professor at New York University. "We are in a space that is very hot at the moment and will continue to be in the coming years."
