In this session, we’ll present the NYU Summer Launchpad program, a ten-week accelerator for graduating NYU student teams that provides them with the skills, resources, and connections they need to develop their startups into commercially viable ventures. We will talk about the objectives of the program, as well as details about what it entails and how it is run. We will provide a brief overview of how it differs from other non-university affiliated startup accelerators. After this short overview, we will use the rest of the session to have two alumni of the program share their experiences and discuss the role NYU played in helping them develop and launch their ventures.
