The Digital Future Lab is a 12-24 month program for early stage companies in digital media, augmented and virtual reality, video, and cloud computing. Businesses in the lab gain access to the vast network of NYU faculty expertise and the university's digital resources; Media and Gaming Network (MAGNET), Tisch ITP, and integrated digital media (IDM); access to AR/VR equipment; curated partner benefits; an alumni network of top AI and tech startups and a program customized for each company.

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

Digital Future Lab cohorts work out of the Future Labs’ DUMBO location in Brooklyn alongside other highly vetted digital companies. As a leading digital hub, startups are collaborative and support each other’s milestones and help the Digital Future Lab with due diligence for incoming portfolio companies.
