Jonathan Rose Companies
Polytechnic Institute of NYU, Varick Street Incubator
New York, New York

As part of NYU-Poly’s entrepreneurship and innovation strategy, Jonathan Rose Companies managed the fit-out of 12,000 SF of incubator office workspace on Varick Street, operated in conjunction with NYU’s incubation program. The project provides co-working spaces, mentorship and entrepreneurship training to recent NYU and Poly graduates.

The scope of work managed by Jonathan Rose Companies included project management of interior construction and of Furniture, Fixtures and equipment delivery and installation, IT & Data services.

The incubator shortens the time from innovation to impact, and provides the guidance, expertise, and resources that start-ups need to grow into scalable ventures that bring economic growth to the greater New York area.

NYU-Poly and the City of New York launched the Varick Street Incubator as part of Mayor Bloomberg’s Five Borough Economic Opportunity Plan in July 2009. The incubator is an integral component of NYU-Poly’s i2e philosophy (invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship).

The incubator is open to all start-up businesses, but is particularly targeted toward the following industry sectors: Digital Media, Cleantech, Biotech, Cybersecurity, Financial Technology, Information Technology, Social Media, Educational Technology, Search Advertising Technology, and Mobile Applications
