Work-Bench is an enterprise technology growth accelerator in New York City. We scale enterprise technology companies by providing community and workspace, connecting exceptional builders to Fortune 500 buyers, and co-investing in extraordinary founders tackling enormous markets.
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.
Builders and buyers need to work together early, often, and intelligently.
The Work-Bench workspace was created to bring together companies, big and small, and provide a new home for enterprise technology. We’re located in a sunny 32,000 square foot space in Union Square, at the heart of New York City. Our workspace is tailor-made for scaling. From custom power strips and modular desks to phone booths, each detail was designed with company growth in mind.
Sharpen your tools with Work-Bench workshops. Our education events offer expertise and knowledge-share to maximize business impact for your company; and our social events connect you and your team with the greater enterprise technology community.
At Work-Bench we have a growing set of resources to connect the brightest entrepreneurs and seasoned technology executives to create lasting value. We provide targeted engagements to our extended network, which includes 97% of the Fortune 500, and direct access to sales leaders and executives for faster feedback cycles that will grow your business.
Work-Bench Ventures co-invests in extraordinary founders tackling enormous markets in enterprise technology. We focus on early stage enterprise technology startups and invest between $250K to $1M in each company.
Post-seed stage enterprise technology companies join Work-Bench with a core founding team, initial product-market fit, and a well-identified problem to solve. Apply now for the Spring 2014 Cohort to join our community, connect with customers, and build to scale.
