QLabs is a tech incubator based in Noho, NY. We’re a small group of hackers who rapidly prototype new technologies every 10 weeks and then test them in the market for long-term potential. Our primary focus is the consumer web and industries ripe for disruption, though we’ve also experimented across a broad spectrum. Our most recent products include Framey, an easy-to-use video recorder, Huntsy, a job organization tool, and When, a private network for families, and are proving an exciting new model for incubating startups.
