New York City’s Chief Digital Officer, Rachel Haot, began in the city’s startup world and rose to prominence quickly. Now, she’s a member of Mayor Bloomberg’s administration and is advocating for more private-public collaboration in making New York a tech mecca that rivals Silicon Valley.

As part of that mission, Haot is focusing on five key areas: Internet access, technology education, open data and innovation, engagement, and developing New York’s tech industry.

Hoat’s goal, as she puts it, is “to fully realize New York City’s digital potential and make sure that all New Yorkers are part of its digital future.” But she feels the city can always do more, especially when it comes to bringing more diversity to the tech sector.

“We still have a long way to go,” says Haot. “The good news is that, for example, we have more female founders of startups in New York City than any other city in the world — more than Silicon Valley, more than London. That’s a very exciting and promising step.”
