Go Dutch Consortium
Go Dutch Consortium asked Outside New York to help with business development in the New York-New Jersey Metro area. GoDutch is a multidisciplinary partnership of Dutch companies working in the global village that offer a range of community development services. GoDutch integrates the physical, social and economical realms, in close cooperation with committed local stakeholders. For GoDutch, the question isn’t simply “what will the buildings look like?” or “Should it be high rise or low density?” But rather, “what is the essence of this place? who is it for? what needs and special needs might they have?” From the GoDutch perspective, the transient movement of people from place to place over their lifetime can unravel the social fabric of a community just as quickly as it is being created. Are these moves part of human nature or rather necessity? For instance, often times housing development in the New York area means a single project with hundreds of units designed for the same types of residents. While this may be financially successful as real estate development, it is not community development. As that population grows they often find the services and amenities they need are not available in their neighborhood. They must move, and in the process uproot themselves from the relationships that helped to sustain them so far in life.
With specialists ranging from sociologists to architects and urban designers, the GoDutch consortium offers high level expertise based on their development experience in the Netherlands and increasingly in the United States.
ONY supports the GoDutch consortium by functioning as their local liaison, offering on the ground support and local presence, research data, promotion and introduction of GO DUTCH Consortium members during their regular business meetings and visits to New York City.

Marine Design Dynamics
For this electrical engineering and naval architecture firm, Outside New York helped to make new business relationships in the Port of New York and New Jersey. A list of top tier clients was identified in the early stage of the collaboration, leading to a work contract with one of these high-profile operators early in the second stage of work together. Project complete 2012. References available upon request.
Real New Energy
For this renewable energy technology company, Outside New York identified potential sites and partners for renewable energy pilot projects including wind, solar and tidal energy. One of these pilots is now being negotiated with others still in discussion. Through this collaboration, Real New Energy established themselves in the New York marketplace as a knowledge base and their presence in the U.S. has grown significantly.
This international event required a wide range of local, state and federal permissions. In this highly complex marine event (click here for more), Outside New York secured contracts with five different marine vendors to assist with installation, operations and breakdown of this 30,000 spectator event which was broadcast on live television. Vessels such as cranes, tugs and barges were needed for equipment moves. Pilot and vessel charter services were hired for rescue dive teams and safety zone enforcement. If or when this event returns to New York Harbor the production team now has a valuable template for their next event.
