“Congratulations for building an incredible community!!! I have thought many times about how inspiring and how much I learned while part of the BF+DA initial team. Watching and supporting Deb’s vision from the sketch of an organization chart to participating in the most evolved and elegant design build project I have ever worked on. The build-out of raw space on Flushing Avenue into the leading edge learning and convening point for eco-fashion in New York was achieved with mission aligned traction and excellence. The Entrepreneur in Residence program grew through this design with emergence and saw dozens of enterprises birthed, sheltered and grown in that beautiful space.
There’s lots to take forward with for all who were touched by it.”Peter Strugatz, Serial Social Entrepreneur, CEO Strugatz Ventures
