WeWork launches mysterious “Area 51” incubator in Tribeca

Co-working giant WeWork is keeping its new incubator project tightly under wraps; refusing to comment to multiple outlets.

Squarespace receives $200M investment; hints it will remain private

Private or public, the company is doing very well for itself, boasting a $1.7 billion valuation. [Built In NYC]

New York lawmakers push back on vote to eliminate net neutrality

Last Thursday, the FCC eliminated Title II net neutrality regulations in a hotly contested vote.

This upgrade comes as other media companies are batting back against declining revenue and large rounds of layoffs. [Crain’s New York]
