Announcing NYU Startup School for Fall ‘17

So you’ve got an idea for a startup, now what? Or perhaps your startup already has initial traction and you’re beginning to ask questions like, “Should I raise capital or join an accelerator?”, “What’s the secret sauce to customer acquisition?”, or “How do I build a social venture at scale?”

Here’s the good news: the NYU Entrepreneurial Institute is here to help. Every week, we run a number of Startup School workshops at the Leslie eLab dedicated to answering questions like these. The main goal of Startup School is to provide NYU entrepreneurs (you) with the right resources, training, and access to industry experts to successfully launch and grow your startup.

We are excited to announce new workshop topics for the fall curriculum of Startup School. New topics include:

  • How to Build Products Users Love
  • Programming for Non Programmers
  • Building a Scalable Social Venture
  • Immigration Law for Entrepreneurs
  • Software Prototyping & User Testing
  • (What Happens) After the Pitch

We will also bring back a handful of favorite topics and speakers from the Spring ‘17 schedule based on feedback collected from attendees. This includes sessions dedicated to:

    • Facebook Advertising
    • Crowdfunding Your Business
    • When and How to Raise VC
    • Angels, Accelerators, VCs: Oh My!
    • Google Analytics
    • The Anatomy of a Term Sheet
  • And More!

All workshops are free for current NYU students, faculty, and staff, but registration is required. There are no prerequisites - simply attend the sessions that are of interest to you - and attend as many as you like.

Registration is now open for September workshops. RSVP for Getting to Product Market Fit Part 1 (9/15), Design Thinking for Entrepreneurs (9/19), Getting to Product Market Fit Part 2 (9/20), Protecting Your Idea or Invention (9/26), How to Build Products Users Love (9/27), and Building a Scalable Social Venture (9/28). Registration will open again at the end of the month for October workshops.
