COME ONE, COME ALL
The $300K Entrepreneurs Challenge at NYU is both an accelerator program & startup competition. Hosted by the W. R. Berkley Innovation Labs at the NYU Stern School of Business, its aim is to identify the most disruptive venture ideas at NYU.
Join us for our 18th Annual Venture Showcase event to meet this year's 27 semi-finalist teams. Instead of listening to pitches from afar, you'll have the opportunity to mix & mingle with the founders directly & engage with their projects up close. From health management technologies to sustainable consumer products to cutting edge commercial solutions, these ventures represent the most exciting & innovative startups at NYU. NYU alumni, angel investors, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, industry innovators & fans of the startup scene are invited to connect with the entrepreneurial stars of the NYU community.
This event will take place at NYU Stern's Tisch Hall. Light hors d'oeuvres & beverages will be served. Be sure to check out the 27 teams showcasing!

5:00 pm - 7:30 pm: Attendees invited to have 1-on-1 conversations with founders at respective team tables; Mingling & networking to take place throughout

What is the format of the event?
You can think of the $300K Entrepreneurs Challenge Venture Showcase as a science fair for startup ventures. Rather than delivering formal pitches to a seated audience, teams will set up booths where they will speak with attendees one-on-one. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about the ventures, ask questions, & interact directly with the founders.
Who is invited to attend?
Everyone! The event is open both to NYU affiliates & to the general public. NYU students, alumni, faculty & staff who are interested in learning more about the startups coming out of the University are strongly encouraged to attend. We also welcome investment professionals, entrepreneurs, & all parties interested in the New York startup & innovation space.
Will there be refreshments available?
