Inspiring and equipping New York City’s advanced manufacturing community

Welcome to Futureworks NYC

We’re on a mission to inspire and equip New Yorkers to build a 21st-century production economy together with a network of partnerships, services, educational programming, equipment, and spaces.

Futureworks NYC is a key component of New York City’s Industrial Action Plan to help emerging and existing manufacturers adopt advanced technologies and increase local production. New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) created Futureworks NYC, an $8 million investment that will create over 2,000 good-paying jobs and provide key support services for businesses to start, grow, and thrive across the five boroughs. Applications for Futureworks Incubator are currently closed, but if you are interested in learning more about getting involved in January, join our mailing list here.
