As cities become more ‘smart’ they undoubtedly require additional resources, programs, and yes government-assisted facilities to both improve current living standards and become forward-thinking agents of change. Here in NYC that entity is Urbantech NYC, an initiative of the New York City Economic Development Corporation. ‘The Hub’ joins two other spaces in Brooklyn to form a trio of spaces focused on the future of making in NYC, with an emphasis on ‘cleantech and smart city companies.’

The Urbantech NYC investment focuses on strengthening the cleantech, civictech and smart city sectors. That includes big industries like mobility and transport, energy, sanitation, mass transit, real estate development and construction. Urban Tech Hubs offer mentorship, event programming, demo days, networking and introductions, workshops and PR. New Lab’s Smart City Innovation Center gives startups production resources like CNC mills, a metal and wood shop, electronics, laser beds and 3D printers. Urban Future Lab, considered a pilot for the program, is already an established centerpiece of the cleantech ecosystem.
