Seven startups in the heart of NYC (Dispatch, Aviary, Yipit,, ChatID, and Tutorspree) have come together to found the Come Work in New York group. The group is  offering a cash incentive of $5,000 for new hires to come work at any of the seven companies, a move meant to keep the appeal of working at a smaller company going while Facebook and Twitter begin building NYC offices. Each startup currently has 10 employees or less, so each new hire is a huge deal for the company.
