Urban Technology Growth Hub

 Proposal Submission Deadline:  June 5, 2015 at 4:00 pm

 Information regarding this RFP is below:

New York City Economic Development Corporation (“NYCEDC”) has a strong history of supporting entrepreneurs in launching early-stage companies, including a network of incubators across the five boroughs of New York City (“NYC”). These facilities have helped foster early-stage startups, centralize the community, and bring educational programming to New Yorkers. As startup companies grow, NYCEDC has identified an unmet need to provide resources to growth-stage companies and enabling organizations that are crucial to transforming the sector’s ecosystem into a leading hub for urban innovation.

NYCEDC, acting on behalf of the City of New York (the “City”), is seeking an Operator (the “Operator”) with a large entrepreneurship network, proven business-development success, and experience with securing and managing real estate to develop and launch the Urban Technology Growth Hub (the “Hub”). The Hub will be dedicated to growth stage companies that address the city’s most pressing urban challenges, including, but not limited to, the clean technology, energy, infrastructure, and smart cities sectors. Specifically, the space will serve three primary functions; dedicated sector workspace, a co-located or adjacent prototyping and testing facility, and shared support services (e.g. demonstration space, mentorship, community building). Ultimately the Hub will provide a home for urban technology startups to further develop collaboration, innovation, and successful growth in NYC.

NYCEDC plans to select an Operator on the basis of factors stated in the RFP which include, but are not limited to: the quality of the proposal, experience of key staff identified in the proposal, experience and quality of any subcontractors proposed, demonstrated successful experience in performing services similar to those encompassed in the RFP, the proposed concept and program, the quality of the space identified, financial feasibility, economic and community impact, and schedule.

This project has Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise (“M/WBE”) participation goals, and all respondents will be required to submit an M/WBE Participation Proposal with their response. To learn more about NYCEDC’s M/WBE program, visit http://www.nycedc.com/opportunitymwdbe. For the list of companies who have been certified with the New York City Department of Small Business Services as M/WBE, please go to the www.nyc.gov/buycertified.

NYCEDC established the Kick Start Loan programs for Minority, Women and Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (M/W/DBE) interested in working on public projects. Kick Start Loans facilitates financing for short-term mobilization needs such as insurance, payroll, supplies and equipment. Bidders, sub-contractors and sub-consultants are strongly encouraged to visit the NYCEDC website at www.nycedc.com/opportunitymwdbe to learn more about the program.
