Innovation is the central issue in economic prosperity.

Michael Porter

The incredible density here in the Brooklyn Tech Triangle means that our 66,000 student-strong population is based in the same geographical area as hundreds of booming tech and innovation companies. The collaboration opportunities here are endless. Forming relationships between academia and the business community is incredibly important for finding quality partnerships for Capstone programs, funding, research, consulting work, service learning projects, and more.
