Venue

The Entrepreneur Space

Please join us for the E-Space’s seventh birthday party!

There’s a lot to celebrate. The E-Space has helped almost 600 small businesses, generated $6.5 million in revenue, and created more than 100 jobs over the past seven productive years. Plus, the Queens Economic Development Corporation, which operates the E-Space, will announce the StartUP! Business Plan Competition finalists.

The E-Space officially opened on Jan. 19, 2011. This 12,500-sq.-ft., NYC Economic Development Corporation-sponsored hub features a fully equipped commercial kitchen, offices, and classrooms. To improve outcomes, QEDC offers business counseling, technical assistance, and financial classes on site. The E-Space also provides room for The Fortune Society, which trains previously incarcerated individuals for jobs in the food-preparation industry.
