At last year's 2015 inaugural summit, we brought together Brooklyn's best minds for two reasons: to have a 300-person conversation about what it means to make it in Brooklyn and to connect those who are currently 'making it' to those who have already 'made it' here.

Our 2016 summit is set to be a bigger, better magic-making event.

To support the surge of startups here in Downtown Brooklyn, we also hold Make It in Brooklyn contests throughout the year. Need funding for your startup? Find out how to win a finalist spot at our pitch contests or grab a ticket to network. Check out our resource page for more great ways to make it in Brooklyn.

There are so many entrepreneurs here in Brooklyn. The creative class is alive and well.
