Harlem Based Incubator #IncubateNYC Wins National Prize
Harlem-based #IncubateNYC was selected by voters online, among roughly 200 small and emerging businesses, in a contest sponsored by the furniture brand Turnstone. The prize is an office makeover worth $25,000.
By the fall, they hope to open their space, where they will host programs and workshops geared toward providing assistance to needy businesses.
Says Shields, “We’re trying to give people a lot of skills and support. “We want to help them turn their dreams into a reality. ”
Ken Neil, the advertising manager at Turnstone, said he believed #IncubateNYC won because of the commitment and dedication that was conveyed in the video they submitted for the contest.
“They had a great story. They really showed passion for what they do. They had a purpose as well. They want to make a difference for the community in Harlem. We couldn’t be happier for them.”
