Launched in July 2009, Varick Street incubator provides space to startup companies starting at $400 per person per month for six months with an option to renew.
The comes space with basic business services (e.g. telephones, fax machines, copiers, shared conference rooms and shared kitchen areas) and networking and mentorship services.
Business Insider said the following about this affordable workspace:
After spending time at various incubators in the city, it very well may be that the Varick Street incubator is the top place in NYC for new entrepreneurs to call home. If you get the opportunity to be at Varick Steet, you enjoy a lot of benefits....The rent is really affordable and includes a lot of amenities that are not free at other incubators. Best of all, you get access to high quality interns / employees from NYU, potential seed investors, NYU faculty advisors, and assistance from dozens of other private partners involved with the incubator.
Probably one of the best benefits is that several serial entrepreneurs call the incubator home and serve as mentors and motivation for first time founders. For example, Stephanie Sarka (founding member of Overture), Jeff Giesea (Founded and sold FierceMarkets) and David Sudolsky (Experienced Entrepreneur in the biotechnology space) are just some of the heavy hitters at Varick Street.
