The campus of Industry City was a key factor in our decision to set up shop in Brooklyn. We knew that this location would be the next technological hub, and we were right; since 2009, the number of businesses in Brooklyn has increased by 32%, and business sales have seen an increase of 48%. This growth is supported by Brooklyn’s competitive advantages, including a large, skilled, diverse labor force, an established education and research infrastructure, and a dense urban core. Whether starting a new venture or moving your business to this location, Brooklyn’s diversity, dynamism, density, and direct access to Manhattan make it an excellent choice for any industry.
