Check the Summer Start Up Sprint, a “2- to 3-week intensive program is one of two bi-annual Startup Sprints for NYU undergrads, grad students & postdocs. Designed for current students (graduating in 2019 or later), the Sprint is an opportunity for early-stage teams to test the value of their solutions with potential customers through customer discovery and experimentation. The Summer Sprint offers either a $350 grant (for two-week participation) or $700 (for three-week participation), plus an opportunity for select teams to receive up to $2,000 in additional funding. Teams can also expect co-working space, mentorship, $5,000 in Amazon Web Services credits and other perks. Select teams will be invited to participate in the Fall Ignite Fellowship at the culmination of the program. The Startup Sprint is offered in partnership with the CIE at the Tandon School of Engineering, and supported by VentureWell and the National Science Foundation under grant number 1644681.”
