The J-Term Startup Sprint (January) offers NYU student and researcher-led startup teams the opportunity to test the value of their solutions through a two-week immersive program. Each selected team will receive $350, over $5,000 in perks, and mentorship, as well as further opportunities for fudning and resources following the program.
Since participating in the 2018 January and Summer Sprints, teams have won the 300K Entrepreneurs Challenge, InnoVention Challenge, and TigerLaunch entrepreneurship competition, while 12 teams participated in either the NYU Summer Launchpad and/or Stern Venture Fellows summer 2018 program. Collectively teams have gone onto raise over $1 Million in competition funding, grants and private capital, while at least 8 of the teams are generating revenue!
The January Startup Sprint will take place January 8th-18th, 2019 (all day each week day).
RSVP to attend a mandatory info session to learn more before the application deadline on November 16th!
PLEASE NOTE: This program is NOT for credit. However, (just like a startup) it REQUIRES a full-time commitment during the program (for at least two core members of your team).
The J-Term Startup Sprint is supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant Number 1644681, as well as by VentureWell.
