Brooklyn sits at the heart of New York City's emerging artisan reinassance but there is much more to this borough than its flea markets and artisan wares. By some estimates, 50-60% of New York’s startup community lives in Brooklyn and it is home to New York mainstays like Etsy, Makerbot, and Six Point Brewery. Brooklyn has grown to be a dynamic place to build a company--and has the potential to be the very best place in the world to start a technology business.

He'll present an over view of the entire Brooklyn start-up ecosystem and identify who the major players are. The class will also explore the Brooklyn brand and why it has become so powerful nationally. Whether you're an artisan or web developer this is a can't miss lecture for anyone looking to do business in Brooklyn.
