What is Make it in Brooklyn?

Make It in Brooklyn is a movement celebrating the entrepreneurial ethos, grit, and drive of the people that make Brooklyn, Brooklyn.

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. 

The Downtown Brooklyn Partnership is the non-profit responsible for bringing together the best minds collectively creating this magic moment in Brooklyn under the Make It in Brooklyn brand, which we have created to 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.

We do this through a series of pitch contests, networking events and our annual Innovation Summit. 

Brooklyn is where the action is. It’s where the people in the world are who are creative and powerful.
