In Fall 2020, the NYU Entrepreneurial Institute introduced a new series of programs to better support and accelerate the pace of technology commercialization by our faculty, PhD students, postdocs, and researchers. The Technology Venture Program (TVP) is a three-part sequenced venture development program which provides grant funding of up to $101,000 in total (across all three phases) to participating project teams. TVP introduces participants to technology commercialization best practices embraced by venture capitalists, startup accelerators, and federal agencies including the NSF, NIH, DOD, and others.
If you're interested in taking part of these programs, apply today for the next Tech Venture Workshop, or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
TVP is a three-phased program at NYU, which provides sequenced skill building, grant funding, and advisement (from entrepreneurs/investors) to help faculty turn their research projects into viable startup ventures. TVP is held in partnership with the National Science Foundation.
The Tech Venture Program is open to any NYU full time/research Faculty or researcher-led teams from across NYU who are interested in commercializing new scientifically driven research developed at NYU in fields including biotech/life sciences, computer science including ML/AI, AR/VR, robotics, blockchain, material science, photonics, electronics, and quantum computing, among others. Project teams are welcome to include students (PhD/student researchers), postdocs, and/or collaborators from outside NYU. No prior business or startup experience is necessary.
Learn more about each of the three phases of the TVP.
A three half-day immersive program where faculty and their teams learn how to test the commercial potential of their research projects directly with customers and partners. The Workshop is held 3-4 times throughout the year.
A seven-week intensive program where project teams conduct rigorous customer discovery and development, to solidify the target market for their commercial venture. NSF I-Corps is held 12 times a year.
A four month program where project teams build out their startup business models, begin to acquire customers, and prepare for fundraising. TVA will be held approximately once a year.
