Yard Labs gives companies the opportunity to beta test frontier technology products by activating the Brooklyn Navy Yard’s 300-acre city within a city. Pilots have access to select infrastructure & space, offering a unique controlled urban environment to test new and existing technologies, collect data, and prepare for market launch.
We welcome companies that make and test equipment for the green economy. Yard Labs pilots leverage our mobility and building assets to lead innovation for climate tech.
