The Lehman Tech Incubator helps tech businesses and entrepreneurs by providing them with access to technology and training they otherwise would not be able to afford.

The Small Business Internship Program (SBIP), formerly the Small Business Consulting Practice program (SBCP), is a project funded by the City Council of New York involving a partnership between the newly created School of Business, the School of Continuing and Professional Studies (SCPS), the Bronx Tech Center and the Small Business Development Center (SBDC). The goal of this project is to create a virtuous circle by providing Lehman business students with applied business training and experiential learning while at the same time supplying Bronx-based small businesses with needed support and resources in the form of student interns. The program was revamped and relaunched in Summer/Fall 2022 after a pause due to COVID19.
