We help you make it here,

Made in NYC supports thousands of local manufacturers and makers by giving them marketing and branding resources, valuable skills-building opportunities, and access to a supportive community of peers within the sector. We value the vibrant and essential manufacturing community as a vital part of New York City’s local economy.

Made in NYC is an initiative of the Pratt Center for Community Development, a community-driven planning and development organization that works for a more just and sustainable New York City in partnership with community-based groups, small businesses, and the public sector. Pratt Center is a part of Pratt Institute.

The Made in NYC Impact

Learning

Marketing, branding, and communications have never been more crucial to help local businesses stand out from the crowd.

The Made in NYC Learning Lab leverages the world-class expertise of Pratt Institute faculty, staff and students to strategically and creatively enhance the marketing capacity of our member companies. Through a wide array of free workshops and creative services we equip member companies with the skills and resources necessary to best market their products.

“The 4 workshops I’ve attended have been very useful and very efficient. The content is really tailored to who is in the room so you receive just what you need to know as a small manufacturing business.”

Matt Frederick, Atlantic Confectionery Company

Community

Community is at the heart of every successful business. We organize networking events, office hours and webinars facilitating connection between members of Made in NYC’s manufacturing community to share challenges, make connections, and forge collaborations.

“Made in NYC helped us get back on track, and also made us realize that we’re not alone.”

– Ike De Guzman, Bonne Fete Baking

MadeinNYC.org serves as an online directory with customizable company profiles, allowing both customers, as well as other businesses, to find locally produced goods and wholesale services.

Marketing

Made in NYC constantly finds new ways to increase the visibility of NYC-based manufacturers and their unique products. Whether through curated pop-up markets, special events programming, or themed holiday campaigns, we provide our member companies with the exposure they need. We also run features on our platform, which allow our member businesses to promote the immense variety of goods and products that they make here in NYC. The manufacturing community also greatly benefits from MadeinNYC.org as it enables them to make informed decisions about sourcing products created within the five boroughs.

“Our listing on MadeinNYC.org is the #1 way people find our company. The Made in NYC logo and brand has huge marketing value and is a great asset to use on our products.”

– Rebecca Scott, Sustainable Snacks
