When & Where
Entrepreneurship & Innovation Association
The Entrepreneurship & Innovation Association (EIA) seeks to create an entrepreneurial ecosystem based upon NYU Poly's i2e mission. The club will provide a forum to learn the concepts of entrepreneurship, provide the benefits of self-employment, and the step-by-step path involved in launching and commercializing your own ideas.
The EIA is dedicated to helping NYU-Poly students navigate the entrepreneurial world. We want to help you find collaborators and cofounders or give you the know-how to work at a start-up.
Integration - Among students in different majors from all NYU schools, students will also interact with faculty and alumni.
Commercialization - Provide students with concepts of entrepreneurship and opportunities to work on commercializing their ideas.
Employment - Help students get internships and jobs through networking with alumni and startups.
