Why Brooklyn? Why Now?

With the growing rise of the “Brooklyn Identity,” there has been an explosion of  Brooklyn branded products marketed across the globe along with an increase in commerce and tourism. At this point, the cachet has switched from Manhattan to Brooklyn. Many businesses now open their flagship stores in the borough with secondary outposts in Manhattan. Some businesses have left Manhattan completely to relocate to Brooklyn. New York City’s most populous borough is a booming business economy with many companies setting up headquarters, factories, offices and studios in the borough which is ripe for additional growth.

The Made In Brooklyn Summit will bring together Brooklyn based entrepreneurs, business leaders and creatives in the varying fields of technology, manufacturing, the arts, music, food, design and media to connect, meet with potential investors, pitch innovative ideas and learn from the Summit’s distinguished speakers.
