State-of-the-art prototyping and commercialization program

In order to support technology development, commercialization, and new-company formation, NYCEDC has partnered with New Lab and Regional Economic Development Council to build a prototyping center and commercialization program. The space will offer Urbantech NYC member companies the physical tools to create new products, services, processes, and business models that solve critical urban challenges. Far from being only physical space and equipment, the program will bring support resources from City agencies, research universities, startups, and the private sector in a coordinated effort to facilitate new product development.

Test and demonstrate technologies on NYC infrastructure

While cities are increasingly looking to utilize new technology to address urban problems, the process for engaging with them remains a challenging process to navigate. In partnership with the Mayor’s Office of Technology and Innovation and New York University's Center of Urban Science & Progress, NYCEDC will be defining spaces throughout New York City that will provide a new way for Urbantech NYC companies to demonstrate their technologies on NYC infrastructure, and solve problems defined by City agencies in the communities in which they are deployed:

  • Improved alignment between community needs and new technology investments

  • Lower barriers of entry for innovative tech companies with smart city solutions

  • Creation of new opportunities for local economic development

  • Advancing academic research in urban science and smart cities

  • More robust testing and community input on new technologies prior to large-scale deployment

Not only will these spaces provide opportunities for growing companies to showcase their products, but also offer an avenue for  New Yorkers to help shape how their City invests in tech.
