New semester-long community-building initiative to produce fun and engaging events for women entrepreneurs on campus. The initiative provides monthly lunch & learn panels, networking events and other special opportunities to help #NYUFemaleFounders grow or scale their startup.

We're looking for female founders and/or individuals interested in entrepreneurship and want to build their network of special industry mentors, investors, potential partners, and an ecosystem of other female entrepreneurs within NYU and the Greater New York City ecosystem.

The NYU Entrepreneurial Institute team seeks female entrepreneurs that want to receive coaching and critical feedback on their idea, participate in skills-based training, and apply to access other competitive programs and resources at the Leslie eLab.

Please email Desiree Frieson regarding upcoming events.
