This year New York University (NYU), Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly), the newly announced Center for Urban Science and Progress (CUSP) are partnering to sponsor the Northside Festival celebrating music, film, art and innovation (June 14-21). This growing festival of over 100,000 participants is poised to be one of the largest launching sites for innovators and entrepreneurs in the New York Area.
As part of this year's festival we are hosting the “Startup Campus,” a series of speakers and panel discussions for startups and entrepreneurs.
The Startup Campus pairs a young entrepreneur with innovative industry leaders in a free-for-all discussion moderated by NYU and NYU-Poly academics. If you want to understand how innovation happens and meet the people behind change it's a must attend event.
We have a stellar line-up for the event! We would be delighted if you could join us. Please check our website for updates.
