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

We are pleased to introduce the teams in the Summer 2023 Cohort of the NYU Tech Venture Workshop.

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

After completion of the workshop, participating teams are eligible to apply to participate in the NSF I-Corps and Tech Venture Accelerator, which collectively award $100,000 in grant funding to further your research commercialization efforts.

Learn more about the program and apply by Oct. 6 to join the next cohort of Tech Venture Workshop teams in the Fall ‘23 cohort
