Meet the NYDesigns Futureworks Shops Fellows: Hylas Energy, Mito Labs, T4D Lab and Pucky
As part of the Futureworks Shops program, we support the growth of hardware startups through workspace subsidies at top prototyping spaces across New York City. NYDesigns has been a nexus for growing startups over the past five years because of their combination of dedicated studio spaces, in-house incubation and a 5,000 sq ft fab lab. This year, we’ve awarded four companies with six months of shared space at NYDesigns, part of LaGuardia Community College, in Long Island City. The companies will also have access to prototyping facilities in the NYDesigns fab lab. Check out the companies below.
