Is there a problem you see at school, at home, or in your community that you want to try to solve?
All NYU undergraduate and graduate students are invited to apply to the Blackstone LaunchPad Ideas Competition, powered by Startup Tree.
Designed specifically for students with no prior experience, the Ideas Competition is an easy way to get your toes wet and see if entrepreneurship could be right for you. All you need to apply is an idea, no matter how small, or a prototype, no matter rough. The competition is completely virtual, run on the Startup Tree platform.
The first round of competition will take place on the NYU campus, and top students from each of four tracks will be selected to win $1,000 each. These four winners will join finalists from each school in the Blackstone LaunchPad network for a national-round of the competition, for the chance to win a $10,000 prize and in-kind support.
Finalist teams of each track in the Ideas Competition will be offered a spot in the NYU Startup Bootcamp, the first stepping stone in the NYU Startup Accelerator journey.
The application will open from September 27th to October 31st.
