Host: NYU Entrepreneurial Institute
The NYU Tech Venture Accelerator (TVA) is a new six-month program that will give STEM-focused research teams access to $50,000 in grant funding, workshops, mentorship, and more to transform their research into scalable ventures and prepare for product development/commercialization. The program runs from February 3-July 21, 2023. Activities will be held twice a month on Fridays, with additional meetings with mentors/advisors taking place on an ad hoc schedule. The program will take place via Zoom, with additional networking and social events held at the Leslie eLab on NYU’s Washington Square Campus (for teams based in NYC).
Who It’s For: The TVA is open to all NYU full-time/research faculty, or researcher-led teams that are interested in commercializing STEM-based research developed at NYU across the life sciences, physical/material science, data science, computer science, and engineering fields. Applicants should have technology that is ready for product development and commercialization, as well as an initial target market/customer identified and a foundational team ready to commit to the venture in the future. This program is NOT open to student-led ventures unless they are collaborating with an NYU full-time/research faculty member.
NOTE: Applicants must have completed the first two phases in the Tech Venture Program (the Tech Venture Workshop and NSF I-Corps program or equivalent) to be accepted to the Tech Venture Accelerator, with limited exception. The Accelerator represents the final phase in the three-part Tech Venture Program series.
PLEASE ATTEND THE INFO SESSION to learn more about the program and application process.
Tech Venture Accelerator applications are open here, and are due: Monday, Dec. 12 at 6pm ET.
