Founded in 2006, NYDesigns is dedicated to the success of design and hardware tech startups in NYC.






Our business incubator welcomes early-stage companies pursuing design-, technology-, or maker- oriented businesses. We provide partially subsidized studio space, access to an onsite fabrication workshop, and professional counsel from a core group of respected experts.



The NYDesigns FabLab is our 5,000 ft2, on-site fabrication that allows makers to prototype design concepts in a safe, secure facility. We offer flexible membership options and digital fabrication services to enable everyone from tinkerers to established design and tech companies realize their next project.




We collaborate with partner organizations and institutions to produce research and program events that raise questions about and suggest inquiry into patterns of participation and representation within NYC’s design and creative sectors.
