DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE CUNY HUB FOR INNOVATION & ENTREPRENEURSHIP (IHUB)?

The CUNY Hub for Innovation and Entrepreneurship is a CUNY facility established to promote entrepreneurship and provide assistance, essential services, and space to start-up companies. Since CUNY faculty members may not use CUNY facilities for commercial purposes, the Hub offers them appropriate space off campus for their entrepreneurial activities.
