The Launch Pad at BAT

The Brooklyn Army Terminal is training the workforce of today and tomorrow, offering programs through the Launch Pad at Brooklyn Army Terminal: a hub for talent, innovation, and entrepreneurs, fostering an ecosystem of opportunity through four distinct, yet connected efforts:

  • Base Camp: A tenant conference center and networking lounge will help tenants scale their businesses through speaker series, industry events, and B2B networking
  • BAT Training Lab: A training center leveraging partnerships with New York City institutions and local nonprofit training and academic partners, such as FIT, to equip residents and employees with modern skills
  • Workforce1 Industrial & Transportation Career Center: Continue strengthening a pipeline of local talent and connecting that talent to tenant hiring needs through existing on-campus Workforce1 Center—building on its success since opening in 2016
  • Futureworks Advanced Manufacturing Center: Opening a 20,000-square-foot advanced manufacturing center for entrepreneurs and small businesses to access high-tech equipment to launch and grow companies on campus
