Our Story


DUMBO Startup Lab offers startups, small businesses and freelancers everything they need to stay focused on building their businesses: beautiful open space, a supportive community of innovators, reliable services and flexible membership options that meet the needs of today’s entrepreneurs.

Our membership includes developers, designers, marketers, seasoned entrepreneurs, experienced freelancers and lots of happy people. Together, we form a network that encourages new ideas, connections and friendships. The common bond is not just the space we share but a shared focus on building companies, products and relationships.

Founded in early 2012, DUMBO Startup Lab is one of Brooklyn’s original coworking spaces and continues to serve as a hub for the growing innovation movement in Brooklyn and beyond.

Not talking elephants with floppy ears here – DUMBO is a picturesque neighborhood, first stop into Brooklyn from Manhattan. DUMBO actually stands for  “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass”. We’ve got beautiful waterfront parks and views overlooking Manhattan, cobblestone streets, art festivals and both the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge running through our backyard.  DUMBO is home to a large community of  digital media companies and successful startups including HUGE, HowAboutWe, and Etsy just to new name a few.


We are always looking for great meetups and skillshare classes to host at the lab. If you’re interested in hosting your next event at the DUMBO Startup Lab, contact us!
