From promoting algorithmic transparency to combatting human vision loss, the 8 startups in NYC Media Lab's 2019 Combine accelerator are tackling pressing issues with emerging technologies.

NYC Media Lab's 4th cohort of the Combine program kicked off in January with 8 new participating startups hailing from NYC universities. The teams will work through the spring on an intensive market validation and customer discovery curriculum, with the goal to launch successful companies. The 2019 cohort is focused on a range of problems, from media trust to health and enterprise solutions. The teams are applying technologies such as VR/AR, voice interfaces, AI, blockchain, and computer vision.

Throughout their journey, founders will share their story. Updates will be posted here and in NYC Media Lab’s weekend newsletters.
