On Tuesday, November 5, 2019, SecondMuse hosted the first-ever M-Corps Dinner & Awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of Cohort 1, and our beloved mentors from the program’s first year. Hosted at Essex Market in the Lower East Side, the evening created an intimate setting for startups joining Cohort 2, new mentors, and program partners, to enjoy amazing food, lots of laughter, and mini 3D prints of Shelby Thompson, the M-Corps Manufacturing Manager (and MC!).
With locally sourced food from vendors located within the Essex Market – including salads from Ni Japanese, meat & cheese boards from Valley Shepherd Creamery, and vegetarian lasagna from Mille Nonne – this dinner could not be more farm-to-table! And right in line with the cleantech programming M-Corps is all about!

From brewer’s waste upcycling to urban e-biking, the new M-Corps cohort is building a cleaner future, and tackling carbon emissions, from many angles covers more ground as we seek to reduce carbon emissions. Not only are these founders building companies, they’re also allies and mentors for each other during the program. Check out the new M-Corps cohort as well as the class from 2018-2019.
SecondMuse is looking for six cleantech startups who are paving the way for a more sustainable future, especially those with strong teams and products who need assistance scaling up to manufacturing. Applications are open through Sept 9.
In January, SecondMuse continued its newest series of hardware startup support. This session focused on Supply Chain Strategy at New Lab in Brooklyn Navy Yard. NYCEDC’s Stacey Weismiller and Inventaprint’s Rich Mokuolu lead attendees through an essential presentation on sourcing and production.
