Sunshine Bronx Business Incubator is the first City-sponsored business incubator to help develop new startup businesses in the Bronx. The incubator will accommodate up to 400 entrepreneurs from the Bronx and across New York City over the next three years and is expected to be fully operational by February 2011. NYCEDC provided a $250,000 grant to establish the incubator.
Located in the historic BankNote Building at 890 Garrison Avenue in Hunts Point, the nearly 11,000-square-foot Sunshine Bronx Business Incubator will provide approximately 180 workstations – split between desks and co-working space for freelancers – targeted to startup businesses and entrepreneurs across industries including finance, new media, technology, green finance and technology, biomedicine, and healthcare. Tenants will be able to lease space on a month-to-month basis.
The incubator will also offer conference rooms, bi-weekly networking events with tenants across all Sunshine locations in New York City, and support services including mentoring, coaching, and business training through a partnership with Baruch College.
Sunshine Suites is a community-based shared office space provider with two locations currently operating in Manhattan. Learn more about obtaining space at the Sunshine Bronx Business Incubator.
