Where We Began...


Est. 2014


There aren't enough spaces where men of color can come together, share ideas, and build with each other. As a result, we started hosting male exclusive meet ups to stimulate conversation and share resources as a way to build camaraderie among men of color. 

What started out as an initiative in 2014 turned into a powerful movement. On Sept. 30th, 2016, our Founder Jeff Lindor, resigned from his career as a Government Strategist to further develop the Gentlemen's Factory. On March 2017, we opened our first Factory in Central Brooklyn and plan to open a lot more in the near future. Let's Learn, Grow, Connect & Build TOGETHER!


Our Vision...


The Gentlemen’s Factory is the epicenter for today’s forward thinking multi-cultural man. It is a home for entrepreneurs, thought leaders, activist, creatives and corporate professionals alike. Our factory is designed to help you reach your full potential in the company of like-minded Gentlemen.

We provide a space for productivity, community and recreation. This is where street savvy meets sophistication and where innovators get their mogul on. You will be welcomed, challenged and celebrated. We don’t grow in isolation, we grow in community.
