What does it mean to Make it in Brooklyn? This summer, the first Make it in Brooklyn Innovation Summit will strive to answer that question. On June 25, the summit will bring together “Brooklyn’s leading innovators, makers, builders, and entrepreneurs to share in a conversation about what it means to make it in Brooklyn.”
Remains Lighting founder, David Calligeros, will join the discussion to talk about the challenges, and rewards, of maintaining and growing a sustainable, successful manufacturing business in Brooklyn. With a push in recent years to increase all aspects of industry in the borough, including manufacturing, technology, and the arts, the summit will offer a unique opportunity for business leaders across varied industries to come together and discuss what it means to be a part of this growing business community in the nation’s largest city.
Other panel topics will include the influence of the arts, restaurants, and real estate on neighborhoods and communities. The summit will bring together a wide range of companies like MakerBot, Brooklyn Brewery, the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
Interested in seeing the future of Brooklyn innovation? In the evening a pitch contest will be held for tech and maker companies to compete for seed funding to pursue their goals of making it in Brooklyn.
