NYC Media Lab Combine seeks to coordinate the community of faculty, entrepreneurs and media executives and technologists that participate in the Lab to build a ‘spinoff engine’ focused on commercializing media technologies from universities. The program is supported by funding from the New York City Economic Development Corporation, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, and through the support of NYC Media Lab’s corporate membership.

The goal for the Combine is to match new technologies emerging in university labs, studios, classrooms and dorms with a program and resources to commercialize them. Key to the proposition is mentorship and market access from technologists and executives at NYC Media Lab member companies. 2017 will mark the second cohort of the program.

Join NYC Media Lab’s accelerator program for early stage university startups! The selected startup teams will receive $25,000 in seed funding; ample opportunities to pitch their work to the Lab’s member company advisors; and access to Lab events, including speaking and demo opportunities.
