NYU Venture Innovation Fund

The NYU Innovation Venture Fund is a seed-stage venture capital fund created to invest in startups built upon NYU technologies and intellectual property. Established in June 2010, this bold initiative is part of the University's on-going commitment to entrepreneurship.

The Fund considers proposals from students, faculty and researchers at the College/Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Engineering, the Courant Institute, School of Medicine, College of Dentistry, Tisch School of the Arts and Stern School of Business, among others.

NYU initially capitalized the Fund with more than $3 million and anticipates this growing to $20 million, with tax-deductible donor contributions. The Fund will make approximately five investments per year, from $100,000 - $500,000, in partnership with angel investors and/or venture capital firms.
