Dropping everything and launching a full-blown business is no easy feat.

While you’ll need a healthy mix of determination and entrepreneurial savvy, there are a number of New York-based tech companies you can use as resources. We’ve rounded up a few that may help get you started, no matter what field you’re looking to pursue.

 

Kickstarter emerged as the pioneer of crowdfunding. The company works to helps creators of all kinds make their ideas a reality through financial backing. They've been around since 2009 and have had more than 10 million people back projects posted on its platform, from movie projects to smart watches.

 

If you’re an expert at making handmade goods, Etsy can help turn your hobbies profitable. The company provides an online marketplace where creative entrepreneurs can sell their handmade, vintage and unique items all over the world. The Brooklyn-born startup was founded in 2005 and has grown to support 1.7 million active sellers and 27.1 million active buyers to date.

 

If you need to make a website to support your business, but don’t have an extensive technical background, you can use Squarespace. The company’s software makes it so just about anyone can build a beautifully designed, immersive website, where you’ll own a domain and be able to start an e-commerce business if need be.

 

If you’re a musician, Tunecore can help you gain initial traction. The company helps musicians distribute their music on sites like iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music, simultaneously allowing artists to maintain complete ownership of their music. Tunecore simply helps artists  distribute their music easily and quickly, and allows artists to collect 100 percent of their sales revenue. The company even helps songwriters collect royalties when any of their music is sold, streamed or performed live.
