Verizon FiOS Quantum Internet Service Will Power Entrepreneurs And Startups At HarlemGarage

NEW YORK, Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Entrepreneurs and startups that take space at HarlemGarage will be able to take advantage of Verizon FiOS Internet Service to help them get their companies under way. HarlemGarage's West 118 th Street incubator location in Manhattan has been equipped with award-winning FiOS Quantum 300 megabits-per-second Internet service, free for six months, to support the high-tech, high-bandwidth needs of these innovative, new companies.

The companies will also gain the advantages of access to the incubator office space and collaborative environment before they move into their own permanent work locations.

The HarlemGarage partnership is Verizon's second such agreement with New York City business incubators. In July, the company partnered with Take the HELM (Hire and Expand in Lower Manhattan), to provide FiOS Quantum Internet service, at no charge for one year, to the winners in the startup category of the competition. Take the HELM is an initiative of the New York City Economic Development Corporation and the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation. 

HarlemGarage, is a MicroOffice company established in partnership with the New York City Economic Development Corporation, and has a co-working community for 150 small businesses. The incubator will hold a launch event tonight from 5-7 p.m. to showcase its new space, at 318 W. 118th St.

"Verizon is a long-time supporter of the development of small businesses and startup companies here in the city, as we know the important role they play in our growing economy," said Angie Klein, Verizon vice president for marketing for the company's Northeast region. "Bringing FiOS Quantum to the HarlemGarage is a win-win. These entrepreneurs will directly experience the difference FiOS can make in their ongoing success as they build, collaborate and grow. And Verizon ensures that as these companies seek out their permanent locations, FiOS is a real estate 'must-have' amenity."

As part of the agreement, Verizon will be able to provide signage and promotional materials within the HarlemGarage work areas, as well as set up a FiOS demonstration area. The company also will be able to work with HarlemGarage's members so they can take the power of FiOS to their new location when they establish their own offices.
