The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the launch of a new service, the Proof of Concept (POC)/Testbed Program.
This service will allow a startup or any company to test their product(s) or concept(s) within the local, diverse Brooklyn marketplace as a way to test, improve and enhance their product(s) or concept(s) for the USA and global markets. Brooklyn’s highly diverse, creative, and entrepreneurial economy is the ideal environment to test your products for the global market.
For the past two years the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce has partnered with South Korean high-tech and AI startup’s where their products were matched with and immersed in local Brooklyn businesses. The Brooklyn Chamber’s unique POC/Testbed program allows real testing of products in actual, selected, and matched Brooklyn businesses, providing valuable feedback on the implementation, use, and functioning of the product. Through the Brooklyn Chamber’s POC/Testbed services, South Korean startups tested and gathered valuable information and feedback about their products and concepts, and their feasibility and use in the US market. This Brooklyn Chamber service provides real data and test results to make any necessary enhancements or changes to prepare the product(s) for the USA and/or global market.
By participating in this POC/testbed program, your product(s) or concept(s) will have the advantage of being tested in a diverse marketplace, becoming a step closer to launching in the global market, while at the same time exposing the Brooklyn marketplace/economy to your product(s) and/or concept(s). To participate, one needs to be a Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce member. The fee to participate in the Proof of Concept/Testbed program will depend on the product(s) and/or concept(s) and the testing environment.
If you are interested to learn more about this program or would like to have your product(s) and/or concept(s) tested at a select Brooklyn business, contact Avi Leshes at [email protected].
