“Participating in multiple programs has taught us how to fail quickly. Starting a company is an iterative, non-linear process and NYC Media Lab has provided us with the tools we need to overcome our failures. Not only has the Lab provided us with the vital curriculum to meet our career goals, but has also facilitated the necessary connections we need to get our ideas off of the ground.”

“Before starting Vidrovr, I was an engineer, and had the technical skills to build video search solutions for media companies but didn't have the connections, sales, or business savvy to make an impact. NYC Media Lab has introduced me to current customers, helped me with pitching, and has been influential in product development.”

“The Combine was fundamental in our company's product focus and company structure. The program's cadence was perfect for pushing our team to establish structured protocols, productive meetings and communication expectations. My background is pretty diverse (consulting, media and product) and NYC Media Lab was able to push us to iterate quickly, do more tests, and get out of our comfort zone. The connections they were able to make were invaluable.”
