The NYU J-Term Startup Sprint (January) is a two week immersive program which offers NYU student and researcher-led startup teams the opportunity to transform their ventures and inventions into businesses. Each selected team will receive dedicated guidance from expert startup coaches, will receive $1,000 in grant monies, over $5,000 in perks, and be invited to participate in many opportunities for funding and other resources following the program.
Past participants have left the program with a newfound confidence in their business capabilities, having found the experience "transformative and groundbreaking" and gave the Startup Sprints a 9.6/10 average net promoter score (across over 200 participants!)! Past teams have been accepted into Y-Combinator, won the $300K NYU Entrepreneurs Challenge (50% of Challenge Finalists in 2019 were Sprint participants), the InnoVention Challenge (100% of InnoVention winners in both 2018 & 2019 completed the Sprint), won many other national and global startup competitions, and have been accepted into the NYU Summer Launchpad and Stern Venture Fellows programs, among other accolades. Many have gone on to generate revenue and raise investment capital!
The January Startup Sprint will take place January 11th-22nd, 2021 (all day each week day) for 2+ individuals.
RSVP to attend a mandatory info session to learn more before the application deadline on November 16th!
Attendees will receive a calendar invite with Zoom dial-in instructions after registering for the event (if you RSVP less than 3 hours before the event, you will receive instructions 30 minutes prior to the event). Effective immediately through at least June 1, Startup School workshops will be conducted virtually as part of a larger NYU effort to not bring large groups of guests and members of the NYU community together in a single venue.
The NYU Entrepreneurial Institute provides reasonable accommodations to people with disabilities. Requests for accommodations for events and services should be submitted at least two weeks before the date of the accommodation need. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
