Rachel Haot, managing director of 1776NY, shared some photos from inside the new startup incubator and seed fund. 1776’s temporary Brooklyn space in the Brooklyn Navy Yard looks sharp; its forthcoming space will be on the top floor of Building 77 in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.

Haot previously served as the Chief Digital Officer and Deputy Secretary for Technology of New York State. Before that she was the city’s Chief Digital Officer.

“Once again, New York City is showing the world what inclusive, meaningful entrepreneurship and economic development looks like,” NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a statement. “Partnering with 1776 at the Navy Yard is a big step toward achieving our goal of making our city the global capital of the new innovation economy.”
