January through May 2016

This year we will provide the Next Top Maker community with the know-how to get started on their NYC-based product enterprise. Starting in January, join an open community of NYC-based product entrepreneurs as they work to create a Product Startup Plan through a series of open community workshops on business planning, design for manufacturing, marketing, understanding users, and legal.

As a community-sourced incubator program, we rely heavily on the wisdom and resources right here in NYC.
