NEW INC is a cultural incubator and professional development program founded by the New Museum in 2013 to support new ideas and approaches to culture, technology, and business that strive for a more creative, diverse, and equitable future. Our goal is
to foster cultural value, not just capital value. 

Our annual membership program, which kicks-off each year in September, is designed to help creative practitioners and organizations leverage the tools of entrepreneurship to realize their ideas, become sustainable, and maximize potential for impact and scale. 

Thanks for your interest in NEW INC, the New Museum's incubator for art, tech, and design. 

We accept applications for Community Memberships on a rolling basis and will only contact you if we are interested in persuing your application.

We are not accepting applications for our Track Membership program at this time. Our next Open Call for Track Members will be during Spring 2019. Sign-up to be notified when it opens.



Community Membership is open to all who are working on a new creative project or venture at the intersection of art, design, and technology. Develop your idea in a thriving creative community that nurtures, supports, and inspires.

Community Membership costs $400/month and includes access to NEW INC's workspace 15 days per month, as well as access to our community program which includes workshops, talks, and office hours with guest mentors. Workspace available to Community Members includes swing desk space, bookable conference rooms, event space, a media production suite and a fab lab. Learn more about our space and offerings here.

We welcome applications for our Community Membership on a rolling basis. Members accepted this year will join our Year 5 cohort, which will wrap in June 2019. Members are invited to reapply at the conclusion of the Year 5 program.
