When David Mahfouda founded Bandwagon, a ride-sharing company that connects taxi passengers leaving from the same location, he knew his idea was golden. It made sense for New Yorkers — the intuitive app saves riders time and money — and New York City — it shrinks taxi lines and helps support city cabs that have taken a hit since the rise of Uber and Lyft. But a prickly question remained: How to grow his business and introduce it to the masses?
The answer, for Mahfouda, was the Urban Future Lab at NYU's Tandon School of Engineering, a business incubator that focuses on clean tech and city-based startups.
