NYU Technology Commercialization Resources

I'd like to invite you to a faculty-only reception on the evening of November 12 at the Leslie eLab to meet our team, other faculty (including several currently working on startups) and learn about the resources available at NYU to support you in your entrepreneurial endeavors. Details and RSVP here.

Whether or not you can make it on November 12, I also wanted to share some of the many services, programs, and resources available to you, your students and postdocs while at NYU:
