IMPACCT Brooklyn provides comprehensive services to help entrepreneurs get started, grow or expand their businesses.

“IMPACCT’s program gave me a bit of foresight about what to expect and what to prepare. Without that, it would have been a bit more tenuous because I was going through the homebuying process for the first time.”
