The NYU Future Labs had an astoundingly good year in 2016, when several of its current and alumnus companies had large funding rounds or were acquired.
A few highlights include a $200 million raise by United Wind, the acquisition of Geometric Intelligence by Uber, a $30 million raise by Clarifai, a $15 million raise by Avanan, and several other raises of more than a million by about a dozen other companies. Not all of these are currently in the program, most have graduated.
