Remo Haptics was selected to participate in the second cohort of NYC Media Lab's competitive startup incubator, The Combine. NYC Media Lab Combine seeks to coordinate the community of faculty, entrepreneurs and media executives and technologists that participate in the Lab to build a ‘spin-off engine’ focused on commercializing media technologies from universities. The program is supported by funding from the New York City Economic Development Corporation, the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, and through the support of NYC Media Lab’s corporate membership. The program focuses on product market fit and uses the Lean Launchpad, developed at UC Berkeley that emphasizes experiential learning, a flipped classroom and immediate feedback as a way to engage students with real world entrepreneurship. At the end of the six month incubation phase, the companies pitch at a demo day to coincide with the NYC Media Lab Summit.
Remo Haptics was among the research groups chosen for participation in The Verizon Connected Futures Prototyping and Talent Development program, in partnership with NYC Media Lab. The program supports the development of new media and technology projects from universities across New York City, linking students and faculty with industry experts. As part of Verizon's ThingSpace the team is provided an end-to-end IoT enablement platform that gives developers a single source to prototype, test, connect and monetize their applications. Remo Haptics is working closely with Verizon's IOT Product Development team to prototype in both hardware and software of their haptic technology under the mentorship of Verizon's Open Innovation Lab.
