If you’re working on a venture idea, join our 3-part workshop on crafting an effective venture capital pitch. These workshops present practical training engineered to help participants develop messaging to communicate — and sell — an impactful project. Each 2-hour session consists of brief 15-minute lectures followed by 45 minutes of hands-on exercises with Future Labs team members on crafting a compelling problem statement, defining a problem-solution fit, defining and communicating your project's economic potential, and laying out a compelling roadmap for the future of your project.

Because of the hands-on nature of this training, participation is limited to 12 teams of no more than 2 members each. Applications are rolling so don’t wait — apply now.

Eligibility to apply:

  • NYU Tandon Faculty, Staff, and Students (graduate and undergraduate) with a specific project for which they are interested in developing a venture pitch.

  • Projects need not be poised to fundraise but must be past the generalized concept stage.

  • Solo members or teams of max 2 participants (even if founding teams are larger).
