The Bronx Business Bridge is part of NYCEDC’s Low Income Fast Track Entrepreneurship Program (LIFT), designed to connect New Yorkers from low-income neighborhoods with opportunities to grow their business and help alleviate key challenges that prevent many from moving up the economic ladder. The Bronx Business Bridge Incubator provides approximately 30 flexible workstations and conference room space to premier start-ups and small businesses. The incubator hosts a suite of services fine-tuned to help guide entrepreneurs towards success.
