Tune in to find out who was selected to be part of the next class of New York's Next Top Makers. Fellows will be supported in the core areas of business planning, design for manufacturing, marketing, understanding users and legal between November 2015 and May 2016. 

January through May 2016

This year we will provide the Next Top Maker community with the know-how to get started on their NYC-based product enterprise. Starting in January, join an open community of NYC-based product entrepreneurs as they work to create a Product Startup Plan through a series of open community workshops on business planning, design for manufacturing, marketing, understanding users, and legal.

As a community-sourced incubator program, we rely heavily on the wisdom and resources right here in NYC.
