Our Mission

NYDesigns is an economic development program of the City University of New York (CUNY) at LaGuardia Community College that catalyzes growth for small businesses and entrepreneurs in the design, fabrication, technology and maker spaces. We pursue this mission by distributing our work across three fundamental concentrations: business incubation, fabrication, and advocacy. We are proudly located in Long Island City, Queens.


Companies in our incubator get 3 years of private studio space and access to a network of mentors and advisers.


Makers can prototype their design ideas in our safe, secure, 5,000 ft2 fabrication lab.


24/7 access to dedicated and shared desks for teams of all sizes, meeting rooms, and amenities.
