Thank you for Voting!

The turnstone contest is over.  Though they did not publish the vote count on the site, we will find out the results at the end of the month, hopefully around May 31st.

No matter how the contest goes, we learned one really important fact.  You all care.  You, the fans and friends of #IncubateNYC, rose to answer the call for support.  You forwarded our video and mission to your networks, friends, family, and anyone who would listen.  You opened your hearts to our cause and support our mission.  For that, we are eternally grateful.

When people support us and put themselves and their brand on the line for us, we do not take that lightly here, and we wanted to take a moment and say thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  We hope to continue to give you a reason to believe in #IncubateNYC!

We Need Your Vote!

On the journey to build a tech incubator for all entrepreneurs, #IncubateNYC was selected from over 100 companies as one of the TOP 25 companies being considered to be given $25K in furniture from turnstone!

This is a huge accomplishment for the team and could have a big impact. #IncubateNYC was founded to support entrepreneurs, and if we win this contest, we can focus a lot more resources towards helping all you entrepreneurs instead of the buying furniture and decorations. A win for us means a win for you!

To win, we need your help:

1) Go here ( and watch the “IncubateNYC: Entrepreneurship for All” video
2) Vote for our video
3) Tell all of your friends!

We would love to be able to invest more in you – will you help us do that?
