Hi everybody!

I hope that midterms went well for all of you! It has been great to see such a great number of students come in to work on their startups in the Leslie eLab, despite their obligations for school. We are thrilled that so many of you are excited to have a space on campus where they can build their ventures, connect to other entrepreneurs, and learn everything they need to know to start up well!

I know that NYU is taking a short fall break this week, but that does not slow us down at the Leslie eLab! Here are a few events I would like to point out to you:
