Meet the Teams: NYU Tech Venture Workshop Summer 2022 Cohort

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

The NYU Tech Venture Workshop is a three half-day immersive program where faculty, PhD, postdoc and research teams learn how to test the commercial potential of their research directly with customers and partners. Participating teams receive grant funding from the National Science Foundation, coaching, and attend workshops on selecting the right market, customer segment, IP, and more.

The Tech Venture Workshop introduces commercialization methodologies adopted by the NSF, NIH, DOD, DOE, and other federal agencies, including business model design and customer development (AKA the Lean Startup).

Participating teams are subsequently eligible to apply to participate in the NSF I-Corps and Tech Venture Accelerator programs, which collectively award $100,000 in grant funding to further your research commercialization efforts.
