We help you make it here, so you can make it here!
Made in NYC supports thousands of New York City’s manufacturers by giving them the tools to grow their companies. We foster local entrepreneurial innovation because we see the value in high-quality, locally-made goods which nurture local economies. We help brands making everything from hot sauce to handbags to bicycles to tell their stories. We unite companies and entrepreneurs as a community to support their endeavors.
Made in NYC is an initiative of the Pratt Center for Community Development, an organization working to build a more just, equitable and sustainable city for all New Yorkers.
