Element 46 is designed to help you catalyze your growth.  We provide programming, mentoring and free workspace, to enable our startups to develop their businesses within a network of peers, while nurturing a shared set of values.

Entrepreneurs will be situated in one of a number of thriving co-working spaces in urban centers or potent communities within Westchester, embedded in an existing start-up community.

We look forward to bringing these key experiences to our first set of talented entrepreneurs in the summer of 2019.
