Startup Bootcamps

Startup Bootcamps for Scientists and Engineers are half-day workshops to expose our faculty, graduate students, and researchers to the basic activities of commercializing research via a startup venture. If you have an invention or product idea, or simply want to learn more about how your work could become the basis for a startup, attend a Startup Bootcamp.

The Entrepreneurial Institute staff will host these bootcamps for NYU schools, colleges, institutes or departments on location based on request.
