Entrepreneurship thrives at Fordham University

Ventures get their start at the Fordham Foundry.

This isn’t just any business incubator. The Foundry grew out of Fordham’s commitment to business that advances society in a way greater and more meaningful than profit. Companies that get their start here share the common thread of sharp thinking about how to financially succeed while adding value to the world.

The Fordham Foundry has strong partnerships with BNP Paribas, Nasdaq, and New York City’s Small Business Services division. It receives ongoing support from Fordham’s Gabelli School of Business, the city government, and corporate and private donors, which allows us to provide:

  • Collaborative workspace
  • Confidential business consultation
  • Mentoring program
  • Ongoing business education
  • Workshops for young entrepreneurs


The Foundry is Fordham University’s Hub for Innovation and Entrepreneurship, where students, alumni, faculty, and community members learn to use creative problem-solving techniques and critical thinking and analytical skills to solve business and social issues of the 21st century.

The Foundry helps its constituents to Learn, Connect, Launch, and Grow their business ventures in a collaborative working environment providing: curricular and co-curricular offerings; access to an inter-connected network of alumni and faculty; and connectivity with the New York City startup ecosystem.


The Foundry serves to inspire all Fordham University students, alumni, and external community members to live lives of character and consequence by serving their local and global communities for the greater good through entrepreneurial endeavors.
