Inhabitat recently highlighted the Pratt Incubator for Sustainable Innovation, which supports the entrepreneurial talents of designers, artists, and architects -- including several Pratt alumni -- by providing them with resources to launch businesses. The Incubator has added nine new companies to its existing roster in the areas of fashion design, home furnishings design, and clean energy technology. The author of the post praised the Institute for "providing business opportunities and services to eco-friendly local artists, architects, and designers" and for showing "how an educational institute can give back to both their alumni and the community beyond the typical college job placement services."
The Incubator is part of Pratt's Center for Sustainable Design Studies and Research, which is led by Incubator Founder and Director Deb Johnson. To read the full post, please click here.
