If you haven’t noticed the rather large banner on the side of Jewlicious, go ahead and click on it now. It will take you to Bikkurim, a NY based incubator for new Jewish Ideas. Applications to join them are open until Feb. 1 and if you’ve got a hot Jewish project, trust me, you want to.
Bikkurim will help you give your project the tools and experience it needs to succeed in every stage from development to sustainability.
What does this mean? In addition to free NYC office space to house your fledgling organization, being incubated by Bikkurim means you get free consulting and help with organizational development in addition to cash stipends, subsidised services and a peer network of talented Jews.
Funded from a private donor, with little discernible agenda other than to help good projects see the light of day and flourish in it, Bikkurim is open to just about anything new. They’re super friendly, so feel free to give them a call to talk out whether your project would be a good fit.
Special thanks goes out to director of Bikkuim, Nina Bruder.
