The Startup Bootcamp at the NYU Entrepreneurial Institute is the first stepping stone in the award winning NYU Startup Accelerator Series.
Bootcamps are two half-day workshops and a week of customer discovery interviews in between. Selected teams will learn how to test the value of their ideas and validate (or invalidate) the problem they are solving for their target customer. As teams work to transform their assumptions into insights, they will refine their businesses and may even pivot on the road to building a more successful startup.
Bootcamps are designed for teams who have shown commitment to moving their ideas forward and have been working on their idea-stage venture for ~2–6 months before applying. Completing a Bootcamp is a prerequisite for the Startup Sprint and Female Founders Fellowship (>90% of teams accepted into these programs completed the Bootcamp).
