Steven Kuyan is Director of Entrepreneurship at NYU Tandon and Managing Director of the NYU Tandon Future Labs — a network of business incubators and accelerators that support early-stage ventures in New York City. The Future Labs support entrepreneurs in technology-specific fields, such as: artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented/virtual reality, video and virtual machines, and others. To date, the unique process has graduated more than 125 companies — 28 as acquisitions totaling more than $500 million — for a combined valuation of graduates exceeding $2 billion. Furthermore, the companies graduating from the Future Labs have helped contribute to a $7 billion impact for NYC. Steven co-founded the Future Labs while serving as an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship at NYU, his alma mater and the institution where he continues to teach. Prior to launching the Future Labs, Steven founded and co-founded three ventures in mobile, B2B logistics, and retail. Steven also founded NYCai, an organization that works to bring together members of the artificial intelligence community — including researchers and practitioners — for programming, research support, training, and more, all to help prepare NYC for an AI future.
