How Futureworks is Creating Access to Advanced Manufacturing

For the next ten months, we’re teaming up with Futureworks NYC to become a Futureworks Shop, and create programs that make advanced manufacturing more accessible to New York’s entrepreneurs. Together with the NYCEDC, SecondMuse, Imagination in Space and our fellow Futureworks Shops throughout the city (go ahead and check ‘em out)–

–we’re working to provide subsidized prototyping, production, coworking, and incubation for advanced manufacturing entrepreneurs.

Futureworks Shops provides New Yorkers with prototyping and production credits, access to coworking opportunities, studio time, mentorship, and events across the city. At each of the Shops, you’ll find advanced manufacturing machinery, an engaged, supportive community, and expert leaders.

Futureworks NYC is a key component of the City’s Industrial Action Plan to help emerging and existing manufacturers promote, adopt, and create advanced technologies and increase local production. To ensure these technologies are made accessible to all New Yorkers, New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) created Futureworks NYC as a platform of shared resources from educational programming to access to equipment and space, and connections within the growing community.

Throughout the next ten months, we’ll participate in lunch meetings with our fellow “shops,” attend workshops, and host some of our own. Be sure to check our social media for updates within the Futureworks Shops community.
