The mission of the Future Labs is to have a positive economic impact in New York City, which is measured in terms of jobs, capital raised, new products launched, exits, and the number of students engaged.
Started as a partnership between New York University Tandon School of Engineering (NYU Tandon), the City of New York, NYSERDA, and the New York Economic Development Corporation, the Future Labs formed in response to the financial crisis of the early 21st-century. Meant to diversify and grow the city's economic engines, the labs fostered — and continue to nurture — New York City's business community by leveraging NYU's resources and providing bespoke support to past and present startups within its network. Educational programs and events further inform and create connections within the city's entrepreneurial community.
