Digital media demos, cleantech idea grants, & more
Welcome back! I wanted to make you aware of a number of exciting events and opportunities that may be of interest to the innovation and entrepreneurship community in NYC.
We are especially looking forward to the NYC Media Lab’s Annual Summit. In addition to demonstrations of digital media research and prototypes, the Summit will include a variety of concurrent interactive workshops led by top faculty across NYC. Last year, over 800 media executives and technologists, startup founders, VCs, university students and faculty attended and saw over 60 teams pitch their cutting edge technologies. If you would like to attend (or even better, demo your media-related technology), be sure to sign up!
PowerBridgeNY, our clean energy proof of concept center, also has several great opportunities this month. First PBNY’s new Idea Grants are a great opportunity for academic researchers who have not previously applied their technology to the cleantech field to explore energy-related applications. Learn more and apply here by Sept. 25 for consideration. PBNY is also looking to hire a Marketing Manager (description and application available here).
In addition to these opportunities available through our partner organizations, CTV has a busy fall calendar including an introduction to the ELabNYC Accelerator at the Morningside and CUMC campuses (lunch will be served!), a Mock Patent Examination with Columbia General Counsel Jeff Sears, and Patents 101 with Columbia Associate General Counsel Teresa Chen.
We hope you will take advantage of these and the many other great opportunities coming up! For more, check out the events on our website.
