Make It In Brooklyn

The Make It in Brooklyn movement supports entrepreneurial grit, a spirit that makes Brooklyn, Brooklyn. 

This happens through pitch contests, funding opportunities and networking events.

Brooklyn is a place where leading trendsetters, makers, pioneers, builders, and entrepreneurs live, work, and create. Downtown Brooklyn is at the heart of that special mix of entrepreneurship, technology, and innovation. 

Under the Make It in Brooklyn brand, we are the non-profit responsible for bringing together the best minds that are collectively creating this magic moment in Brooklyn. We serve as the connective tissue between the borough’s startups and entrepreneurs to the seed-funding, mentorship and connections it takes to make it here in Brooklyn.
