2014 NYU Entrepreneurs Festival

Friday, February 28, 2014 - Saturday, March 1, 2014

Engineers = Creators = Entrepreneurs.

New York University hosts the third annual NYU Entrepreneurs Festival on Friday, Feb 28th and Saturday, March 1st  to celebrate the vibrant and growing startup culture at the University.

The Festival enables startup founders, investors, and prospective entrepreneurs from the NYU entrepreneurial community to share their experiences, exchange valuable insights, and provide advice on creating new ventures with students, faculty, and alumni.

As NYU’s newest School of Engineering, NYU-Poly is incubating future creators and pioneers of technology. At the Festival, you will be able to exchange valuable insights, find your co-founder and other entrepreneurially-minded students and faculty, get advice on creating new ventures, and use your engineering-training to direct use.
