The NYU Innovation Venture Fund is a seed-stage venture capital fund created in 2010 to invest in startups founded by and/or commercializing technologies and intellectual property developed by NYU students, faculty and researchers.
NYU excels at turning federal research dollars into patentable inventions. In recent years, it has converted intellectual property into more licensing income than Stanford, Columbia, MIT, Harvard, and the University of California system. In two decades, over 100 startups have been built on NYU discoveries and innovations. The Fund will bolster that strength.
