New York’s mayor supports the creation of business incubator with Coworking facilities

Is the Coworking movement getting some kind of official recognition ? It sounds like it is, after Michael Bloomberg, the Mayor of New York, just announced is support (a 250.000 $ grant has been provided) for the launch of a new business incubator with coworking facilities in the Bronx. The goal is to accomodate up to 400 entrepreneurs.

It could be an inspiring path for public decision makers and city councils in Europe…

Sunshine Realty Management inked a 10-year lease with Taconic Investment Partners to make the incubator a reality. Sunshine expects the office space to be self-sustaining within the first three years. There is about 11,000 square feet of office space in the soon-to-be-open Sunshine Bronx Business Incubator—room enough for 180 workstations. The incubator will offer desks and coworking space for freelancers.
