    Bronx StartUp Lab



    The Bronx StartUp Lab is where you test your business idea out with other entrepreneurs. 

    Bring the person (or people) who are interested or committed to starting a business together. Learn a new tool to assess your market and product or services. And get a chance to hear and give feedback to your peers about proposed business ideas. 

    For all those who want to start a business with others, this is your window of opportunity. We work with people who are at the idea stage or have already started setting up their business.


    Check out what we've got planned:

    • Network and build relationships with other enterprisers.

    • Learn to use a tool to understand how viable your business idea could be.

    • Present your concept to the group - get feedback. We encourage entrepreneurs to have an idea already in mind.

    • Hear more about how you can turn your concept into a green business.

    • Participants are encouraged to bring others that are interested in being part of a worker-owned company, or someone you work with already. You should come with at least one other person but it is not required.


    Check out more info about the Co-op Academy, the 5 month business "bootcamp" for cooperative start ups.
