We are excited to introduce the teams of the Winter 2024 cohort of the NYU Tech Venture Workshop.

The Workshop is an intensive program spread over three half-days, designed for NYU faculty, PhDs, postdocs, and research teams. The Workshop's goal is to help teams explore the commercial viability of their research through direct engagement with potential customers and partners. Participants benefit from grant funding by the National Science Foundation, expert coaching, and access to specialized workshops covering market selection, customer segmentation, intellectual property, and more.

Upon completing the workshop, teams may seek to apply to the NSF I-Corps and Tech Venture Accelerator programs, which collectively provide $100,000 in grant funding to support research commercialization efforts. For more details about the program and application process, attend an info session with us on April 3 or May 2.
