Bronx Business Bridge Incubator
The Bronx Business Bridge Incubator is a unique work space that provides extensive business support, counseling, and services for entrepreneurs from underserved communities.
With flexible workstations and conference room space for approximately 30 start-ups and small businesses from the Bronx and New York City, the Bronx Business Bridge Incubator focuses on supporting traditionally underserved entrepreneurs.
Incubator participants enter a one-year service agreement and have access to a wide-array of services including:
- Bi-monthly one-on-one business counseling;
- Mentorship program with access to experienced entrepreneurs;
- Workshops, panel discussions, and advisory services on marketing, legal, and tax issues;
- Monthly networking events;
- Technical advice and assistance from industry experts and Lehman College faculty; and
- Access to a select group of interns from Lehman College.
The incubator is located on the 3rd floor of CUNY on the Concourse at 2501 Grand Concourse. The Certificate program, incubator space, and services are operated by Lehman College.
Certificate in Entrepreneurship
Clients are selected through a competitive selection process. Prior to entry into the incubator, selected applicants enter a free six-week Certificate In Entrepreneurship program tailored to further develop entrepreneurs’ business plan. The Certificate program aims to support entrepreneurs prior to entry to the incubator so they can hit the ground running. Those who successfully complete the Certificate program have an opportunity to apply to the Incubator.
Apply to the 2015 Program
The first Certificate In Entrepreneurship Program ended December 2014 and a select group of entrepreneurs entered the Incubator in January of 2015.
We are excited to offer our second free Certificate In Entrepreneurship Program this March. Visit the Lehman College website to apply and learn more about the Bronx Business Bridge Incubator.
