The Tech Venture Workshop is a three half-day immersive program where faculty entrepreneurs and their PhD/postdoc 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, mentorship, 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: business model design and customer development (aka the Lean Startup). Participating teams will be eligible to apply for the NSF I-Corps program, new grant opportunities through the NYU Entrepreneurial Institute (TBA later this fall), and will be well poised for a strong SBIR/STTR grant application in the future.
The next Tech Venture Workshop for this academic year will take place virtually (via Zoom) over three consecutive Fridays (and you must attend ALL three days) on February 12th, 19th and 26th (9am EST to 2pm EST each week).
Workshop applications are due Monday, February 1st. You will be notified of your acceptance to the Workshop by Wednesday February 3rd.
