The City of New York is committed to supporting entrepreneurs who choose to base and grow their businesses right here. New York's Next Top Makers, brought to you by New York Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), is helping to position New York City not only as an entrepreneur-friendly city, but a leader in the new production economy, stimulating the growth of an ecosystem of Makers, designers, creators and manufacturers that is dynamic, sustainable and provides opportunities to all New Yorkers.

In its third year, Next Top Makers is expanding opportunities for others to engage in the space by introducing a five part series of community workshops geared at aspiring product entrepreneurs. We are also popping up at our own and other relevant events such as MakerFaire, Northside Festival, and local meetups to get the word out about the program and manufacturing here in New York. Read more about last year's Five Borough Pop Up Tour on the blog.
