DUMBO Will Be Home to Brooklyn’s First VC Firm!
Earlier this week Brooklyn Bridge Ventures, Brooklyn's first Venture Capital firm, launched amongst Brooklyn's growing tech community. Today - we're letting you know that he will be here - in DUMBO at the NYU-Poly Incubator! What better spot to start out than (a) in DUMBO and (b) amongst the prospective start ups at the soon to be filled-up Incubator.
Charlie O'Donnell, founder of Brooklyn Bridge Ventures, tells us, "I'm excited about the opportunity to build community here--not just in the incubator, but in DUMBO and in Brooklyn as a whole. There's a real movement of people working on interesting projects, and connecting them up creates a platform for sustainable innovation in the area. I hope the incubator can be a springboard for continued growth in Brooklyn- that the companies coming out of here will stay in the local community."
