Tech Incubator to Launch in Brooklyn, N.Y.

Clean tech incubator to launch in NYC's DUMBO district in Brooklyn

June 24, 2013 By

Coming this fall, New York City will launch a 2,000-square-foot clean tech incubator called the Clean Technology Entrepreneur Center with intensions to hold space for 20 startups that focus on clean and green technologies, according to local media.

Through a partnership between the city’s Economic Development Corp. (NYCEDC) and the Polytechnic Institute of New York University, the incubator will open shop in Forest City Ratner’s 15 MetroTech.

The NYCEDC will pay $750,000 over the next two years to help fund the project.

And this isn’t the first time the NYCEDC and NYU-Poly partnered to launch incubators to create technology jobs. Since 2009, the two entities together have developed three incubators: the Varick Street Incubator in Hudson Square; the NYC ACRE; and the Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass (DUMBO) Incubator in Brooklyn, according to the NYCEDC.

15 Metrotech is not located in DUMBO and the picture that accompanies the article is not a picture of 15 Metrotech, though it is a picture of a building in DUMBO. Check your research.
