The City College of New York’s Zahn Innovation Center is the recipient of $500,000 in capital funds from the Manhattan Borough President’s Office. The award will enable the   Center, a startup incubator, to dramatically improve its manufacturing offerings by adding short run manufacturing capabilities to the equipment in its MakerLab. The MakerLab is a rapid prototyping facility designed for student entrepreneurs and the hardware startup community. The new equipment and improvements will bring lasting impact to City College and Harlem community startups, both benefitting from the upgrade.

“I am thrilled to support the Zahn Innovation Center and assist in the creation of a prototyping hub in Harlem, led by student innovators” said Manhattan Borough President Gale A. Brewer. "I am proud to invest in a diverse group of students and local entrepreneurs as they build their startups and test their ideas in this lab of the future.”
