The Week Ahead at the Leslie eLab

Hi everybody!

We hope that you all did well on midterms and now have a few a few easy weeks until Thanksgiving! We are sure excited about the next few weeks, mainly because we have some awesome events coming up. But before I give you a heads up on that, let me briefly talk about something that has always been a primary intention for us: we like to see connections being made, teams being formed, and entrepreneurs finding co-founders.

We want to build a community of entrepreneurs, both here in the Leslie eLab but extending to all of NYU. We know that many of you are looking for help with developing their ideas and what better way to do that with fellow students?

To facilitate this process, we will host a TeamBuilding event at the Leslie eLab this week (details below). You will have chance to pitch your idea, let others know what you need or got, and we will officially introduce our "Build a Team" wall! How exciting is that? Make sure to be a part of it!

Now for all the other exciting events:
