The Data Future Lab is a 12-24 month program for early stage companies using artificial intelligence, machine learning, or building intelligent agents, or data/AI for industry ventures. Companies in the Data Future Lab gain access to the vast network of faculty expertise at NYU’s four data/AI schools; Courant, Center for Data Science, CUSP and Tandon; top-tier computing credits with hosting companies; curated partner benefits; an alumni network of top AI and tech startups; and a program built for each company individually.

We guide and connect startups with potential customers, industry experts, academics, partners, and investors. Unlike other programs that are limited to short 3-6 month timeframes, regardless of a company's needs, our program allows startups to stay as long as two years, meeting unique needs that arise to ensure startups graduate as scalable ventures.

Data Future Lab cohorts work out of the Future Labs’ SoHo location in Manhattan alongside other highly vetted AI and data companies. The culture of the space is collaborative. Not only are current portfolio companies part of our acceptance process, but we encourage companies’ to support each other.
