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 16th Annual Venture Showcase event to meet 37 of this year's semi-finalist teams. Instead of listening to pitches from afar, you'llhave the opportunity mix & mingle with the founders directly & engage with their projects up close. From health management technologies to customized culinary offerings to cutting edge sustainability 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.
5:00 pm: Doors open
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 in order to mix & mingle 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?
