In 2015, Qualcomm committed to purchasing almost all of Colossal’s NYC units. The Qualcomm campaign was so successful that the telecommunications giant returned in 2016 for another, equally impressive campaign.

Silicon Alley and the Thriving Tech Community

Within the last 15 years, New York City has exploded onto the scene as the largest urban center for innovation and the second-largest tech hub in existence. In terms of venture funding, between 2003 and 2013, the city grew at twice the speed of Silicon Valley, putting it on track to take over as the global industry leader.
