"The challenge at the Sunshine Bronx Business Incubator was to create a hybrid work space that would support traditional business processes and promote the new way of working by fostering collaboration among the diverse members of the community. We wanted the space to reflect Sunshine's core values about what it takes to succeed in business: transparency; innovation; flexibility and inspiration."

"Just four years ago, we were in a double cube at Sunshine. I truly believe that going from a home office to Sunshine Suites was a big step in our development enabling me to share ideas with my other two co-workers daily and be in a work environment as opposed to being tempted to turn on the TV every morning. We're closing in on 150 full time employees now."

"Cheni Yerushalmi of Sunshine Suites has been a tremendous asset to the Kauffman FastTrac program we run in partnership with NYC Business Solutions. Not only does he share his own experiences and insights, but he offers our participants encouragement in their endeavors, provides information about the tremendous resources available in New York City, and urges them to learn to network and "get out there". Cheni has clearly become an integral player in the NYC start-up scene and would be an asset to any region embarking on entrepreneurial programs as an engine for economic growth..."
