DUMBO Innovators Meet Up: FakeLove
The DUMBO Innovators Meet-Up is a new monthly series from the DUMBO BID and the Made in NY Media Center by IFP, highlighting innovative companies right here in our own neighborhood. DUMBO has long been home to individuals and companies with equal parts creativity and business acumen. Each month, we’ll be shining a spotlight on the vanguard, cutting edge companies and people who call DUMBO their home.
