Join us in Welcoming the 2022 J-Term Startup Sprint Cohort

Stay up to date on upcoming events, deadlines, news, and more by signing up for our newsletters!

This January, the NYU Startup Sprint will offer 15 teams, representing 10 different NYU schools, the opportunity to get the support and resources they need to test the potential value of their solutions. The Sprint is a 2-week customer discovery intensive. This year's cohort was very competitive with 80 + applications submitted! 

The Startup Sprint is designed to support undergrad and grad students that have an idea and/or prototype, and have began to form a team. Through the Sprint, NYU students engage directly with their target customers to learn more about them, their problems and pain points, as they explore the potential of their ideas and inventions.

Perks of the program include:

  • A $1,000 grant, plus an opportunity for select teams to receive up to $500 in additional funding
  • $5,000 credit from Amazon Web Services
  • Legal guidance from Fenwick & West
  • 1:1 coaching from expert mentors
  • Lots of startup skills workshop
  • And much more!
