NYU Summer Startup Sprint
Startup Sprints are two-week programs that teach and support aspiring NYU
entrepreneur teams to transform their ideas and inventions into businesses.
During the program, teams will work intensively with expert startup coaches
as they conduct rigorous customer discovery to refine their business
models. Teams will be provided with skills-building workshops, grant
funding, peer support from their cohort of startup teams, legal guidance
from partner law firms and more!
Goal: To deeply understand their customer’s needs and purchase behaviors,
and test the value of their potential solution
Who it’s for: Current students and recent alumni (graduated in Fall ’20 or
after) at any stage of development (but prefer beyond idea stage). Strong
preference for teams who have completed a NYU Startup Bootcamp
Program Dates: Tue, June 1 – Fri, June 11, 2021 (9 days)
NYU Summer Launchpad
NYU Summer Launchpad (SLP) is an immersive 9-week accelerator for highly
scalable startups led by NYU students (including those graduating in ’20).
Teams receive one-on-one mentorship with 60+ investors and experienced
entrepreneurs who support the program, immersive customer development and
business operations training, pro-bono legal and accounting services via
McCarter & English and EisnerAmper, and $10,000 in non-dilutive funding,
all in a dynamic, community-minded atmosphere.
Goal: To refine their business models, achieve product-market fit and fully
launch and scale their startups.
Who it’s for: Students and recent alumni (graduated in Fall ’20 or after),
ready to launch a highly scalable venture full time (can be non-profit or
for profit ventures).
Program Dates: Mon, June 14 – Fri, Aug 13, 2021 (9 weeks)
