The NYFT Lab is the brainchild of the Partnership for New York City and Springboard Enterprises, both groups dedicated to the growth of startups in New York City.

Our VP of Product Marketing Ellie Cachette presented a workshop for the lab companies on delivering a Minimum Sellable Product. The New York Fashion Tech Lab is on a mission to bring tech to the forefront of fashion and is bringing Koombea along with them. “We are thrilled to be a part of the lab’s mission to expand the future of tech into all industries,” says Nicolas Costa, Koombea’s Director of Sales who is helping the program extend to international applicants.

“Koombea has brought our program tremendous value” Springboard President Amy Millman commented, “involving technology partners is critical to the success of the NYFTLab.“
