Cohosted with NYU'S CASEA.
EIA-U is a semester-long program that aims to expose students to the principles of entrepreneurship outside the restrictions of a classroom. EIA-U is free and open to all.
Over the course of 4 classes, EIA-U participants will learn about all the skills and resources that they need to enter Inno/Vention, the NYU $200K Challenge, or to get started in a venture on their own-- all in a supportive, peer-enabled environment.
Who is EIA-U for? If you want to launch your own startup, learn new skills, or if you're just curious, EIA-U is for you. No HW, no tests-- just get the support you need, build your ideas, and learn new skills.
