The event is sponsored by Harlem Co-working Meet Up group, Silicon Harlem, Spring Bank, the Harlem Garage and TTW Consulting.
The event will be held at Harlem Garage. One of many Harlem-based leading edge businesses including Harlem Garage and Harlem Biospace. The city’s Economic Development Corporation has plans to launch a second incubator in the area. And Silicon Harlem‘s monthly events grow more crowded each month.
Says Bruce Lincoln, Senior Fellow, Columbia Institute for Tele-Information, Columbia Business School & Silicon Harlem founder:
“What’s unique to Harlem is that it has always drawn creative, artistic people. Artists and creators today work with technology. We are a community on the rise. We see Harlem as being an innovation center.”
