Bronx leads new business growth | Crain’s New York Business


The Bronx continues to rise and this time we can attributes to the business sector. According to an article published in Crains New York, our great borough of the North has experienced an 305% increase in new businesses incorporated between 1991 and 2011. In fact, the increase was so much that the analysis indicated that the Bronx lead all 5 boroughs during that time frame.
As residents of our beloved borough, we already know this to be a fact. We are people that don’t necessarily wait for opportunity to knock but we make our own opportunities – call it the Bronx Hustle if you will.
From restaurants to breweries and galleries, and green technology, the Bronx is teaming not only with this increasing activity of entrepreneurship but also with an untapped pool of talent.
We have the infrastructure, now we need to continue to show the business sector what they’ve been missing out on!
