We seek a charismatic individual who brings a genuine passion for accelerating the pace of innovation, entrepreneurism, and STEAM learning within Brooklyn and the greater NYC area, as well as a deep knowledge of the local business and civic communities, and experience closing deals ranging from $50K to $750K/year.
