VC explains the advantages of New York City over San Francisco

GGV Capital venture capital associate Andy Manoske talks about the advantages of New York City over San Francisco in term of venture capital.

However, he said he wouldn’t go that far:

Geography is only one of the factors for VC firms, there are many more elements need to take into account.
