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!
