About This Community

Our mission: Driving Innovation in Queens aka. the Most Diverse Borough in the World.

We created this community because we want to bring together Queens-based individuals at the intersection of entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation. We welcome local startup founders, operators, creatives, advisors as well as small business entrepreneurs, marketers and brand builders, even if you don't live in Queens or are not directly connected to Queens Economic Development Corporation (QEDC). We aim to provide an online community where everyone can connect with each other and build relationships.
