From CSI Starrett-Lehigh: Thank you New York!
2013 has been a wild ride. One year ago, we had just opened a pop-up
space in suite 325 in the Starrett-Lehigh building in NYC, and we were starting to host a few events. We were
working day and night to make CSI Starrett-Lehigh a success but some pressing
questions hung over our heads: Would we secure the resources we needed
to operate? Would the construction go according to plan? Would the
design vision come together? And, most of all: Would anyone actually
Fast forward to today: We operate a beautiful space, we’ve built an extraordinary team, and we’ve started to create a name for ourselves across the city. Most importantly, you came! We now have 150 outstanding member organizations and projects.
We are so honored to host you and to build this community together. We are so deeply appreciative that you have taken a chance – that you have seen in our model the potential to realize your own vision. Our team continues to be inspired beyond words. The passion, vision, and capability of this community blows our minds every single day.
You are on the vanguard of a movement that is redefining the world. And every day, at CSI and in all our work, we are proving that we can do more together than we ever could alone.
Know that we are committed to you and to doing even more to support your work in the years ahead. The Centre for Social Innovation in New York City is just beginning. We will continue to focus all of our energy on making our space and programs the most amazing in the world.
Thank you for all your incredible support in 2013. We hope you found time this holiday season to rest, relax, and reflect. We hope you found time to connect with friends and family – and yourself.
We wish each and every one of you the very best for 2014. May your impact be greater than ever before!
