NYCEDC is proud to announce the second round of Futureworks NYC Growth Initiative grants for early-stage advanced manufacturing companies. If you are a manufacturing startup or developing advanced manufacturing technologies, apply! You could receive $30,000 in funding to support your growth here in New York City. No. Strings. Attached.
Well, a few strings, but they’re simple ones. You must have been incorporated at least one year, have fewer than 15 full-time employees, have generated revenue (revenue, not profit) or piloted products. To qualify for the Futureworks NYC Growth Initiative grants, you cannot have received institutional funding which is considered a Series A round or above. Angel investors or crowdfunding is totally fine!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
