What the press is saying

Let’s Work Together

A technology hub, amongst major industries and Fortune 500 companies, is emerging in New York City. Yet despite the proximity, startups and corporations aren’t working together enough. Enterprise start-up founders continue to face challenges: slower value creation, complex sales and distribution networks, and lack of immediate feedback. Large corporations struggle to identify and integrate technologies capable of solving numerous critical business problems. Work-Bench bridges the divide to connect builders and buyers.
