About Us

The NYU Entrepreneurship and Innovation Association provides student entrepreneurs with the proper support and resources to go from ideation to launch. We host InnoVention, a student startup competition awarding over $30,000, and manage SparkStart, a year long startup program where ventures are nurtured from ideas to companies.

We are founders, developers, designers, gamers, tech junkies, and, most importantly, students.
