Newlab is the actuator applying technology to things that matter.

We pair best-in-class entrepreneurs, engineers, and inventors with leaders of industries, cities, and domain experts to power agile solutions for the world’s most pressing challenges.

We apply transformative technologies, including robotics, artificial intelligence, and material science, and convert that energy into forward motion where it matters most—our health, environment, media, cities, and infrastructure.

We do this through our Membership and Studio programs.


We champion over 800 world-class inventors, engineers and entrepreneurs working on things that matter.
