Business Incubator

Grow Your Business

Foundry Residency gives you space to run your business, provides business mentorship, and offers many other business-related programs and perks. Our businesses are the driving force in a lot of the programming and activity at The Foundry!

For access to shared spaces see our Makerspace memberships.

Joining Our Community

We give preference to low-income, women, minority run and neighborhood-based businesses, and folks who are passionate about education and mentorship. We do this because we believe in a future that builds a just and locally grown economy that gives equal opportunities to the historically disadvantaged.

If you don’t fall under any of these categories, don’t fret! It doesn’t exclude you from applying and being accepted as a resident of The Foundry.
