Europe’s largest business incubator will open its first U.S. site in New York City.
The new facility will be located in Brooklyn Navy Yard, an industrial park that’s home to more than 330 businesses.
The aim is to “take advantage of all the innovation and technology companies that are blossoming in both Amsterdam and in New York and try to get them to get closer together,” New York Deputy Mayor Alicia Glen said.
“This is about the future. This is how the economy works now … to have these ties between cities,” said Amsterdam Deputy Mayor Kajsa Ollongren.
