Manufacturing activity in New York picked up this month, expanding at the fastest pace in three years. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York said Monday that its Empire State manufacturing index jumped to 30.2, the highest level since 2014. Any reading above zero points to expansion. Shipments of goods soared more than 11 points to 27.5, the New York Fed said. New orders fell nearly seven points to 18, a reading that still indicates demand is solid. A measure of employment rose, a sign that factories in the state are creating more jobs. Nationwide, manufacturers are benefiting from a healthy global economy and a decline in the dollar’s value, which makes U.S. goods cheaper overseas. Automakers have also ramped up pr... Read More

China’s manufacturers are enabling a new model of startup incubation

In Business, Government, Start Up by Venture BeatLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

The current chronology Silicon Valley hardware startups typically follow is slow and disordered. But that could change with a new incubation model emerging from an unlikely group: China’s global hardware manufacturers (OEMs). Usually, when launching a hardware business, startups make prototypes, then raise capital so they can fund production. They then often turn to China, where they begin the arduous process of identifying and trying out multiple suppliers, manufacturers, and logistics companies. After a time-consuming and, frankly, painful process of speed-dating, fraught with miscommunication, startups will choose their partners. These relationships are transactional in nature, which means, right from the onset, there is a fu... Read More
