ABOUT

Comprised of a consortium including New York City Economic Development Corporation, School of Visual Arts, New York University, Columbia University, The New School, CUNY, IESE, and Pratt Institute, NYC Media Lab's goals are to include generate research and development, knowledge transfer, and talent across all of the city’s campuses.

The Lab is built on corporate membership.

Prototyping Projects take a variety of forms. NYC Media Lab brokers these projects; Member Companies have access to the results.  Browse our prototyping projects by area of interest.
