New Lab is an interdisciplinary space designed to support entrepreneurs develop new technology hardware, especially in emerging fields such as robotics, artificial intelligence, connected devices, and smart infrastructure. New Lab helps companies take ideas “from a napkin sketch to a working prototype” by giving them access to tools, expertise, and a collaborative community.

As part of our Inside Industry tour series, this 90-minute guided walking tour begins at the Brooklyn Navy Yard Center at BLDG 92, which showcases the some of the 330+ businesses across many different industries that call the Navy Yard home, where we will discuss the changing nature of urban manufacturing in New York City. The tour will then head over to New Lab’s 84,000-square-foot space, built in a former machine shop that now houses space for 50 New Lab member companies, with space for up to 500 designers and entrepreneurs. New Lab offers its members the use of more than $3 million in shared equipment such as 3D printers, CNC machines, and other digital and fabrication tools that help them accelerate the design process. Along the way, participants will hear stories about New Lab member companies, explore the unique architecture and design of this repurposed industrial space, and see examples of prototypes and finished products produced in New Lab.
