To the WNY Community: A statement about recent events
The Foundry is a makerspace and business incubator, a place of possibility. If you have a dream, we can help with the skills, tools or space to realize it.

With that said, we felt it important to take a stand along with so many others to denounce the senseless murder of George Floyd and countless others.Read more
We Miss You!

Students, small business tenants, WNY YouthBuild, instructors & adult class participants, volunteers, makerspace members - each and everyone of you supports our mission and makes The Foundry a unique community in WNY for learning and entrepreneurship.
Thank you!Read more
