NYU Poly Prototyping Fund Showcase

by Jonathan Denby Oct 22, 2014
NYU’s Polytechnic School of Engineering (SoE) Prototyping Fund Showcase is a collaborative program offered by the Greenhouse at NYU Polytechnic SoE (sponsored by a VentureWell grant) and the NYU Entrepreneurial Institute. It's one of an increasing number of innovation showcases occurring across the University. Each semester, ten teams of students receive up to $500 to build a hardware or software prototype. Teams present their projects at the showcase and discuss what they learned through building and testing the prototypes, as well as what they plan to do next in the development process. Read More
