Hello 👋🏼 first-year NYU Tandon entrepreneurs!
We have an exciting announcement for all teams registered for the NYU Tandon Made Challenge!
🏆 New $500 Prototyping Prize 🏆
To recognize and support participating teams’ entrepreneurial spirit, we have a major announcement to make;
All teams that participate in all three NYU Tandon Made Challenges will be awarded $500 in prototyping funding and support from the NYU Tandon Made Challenge team to iterate on the concepts you submitted to all three of the NYU Tandon Made Challenges!
This $500 prize will go towards the development of a prototype based on an ideas your team submitted in during the NYU Tandon Made Challenges. At the end of the Fall Semester, these groups, in addition to our winning teams, will present their prototypes at the NYU Tandon Made Challenge Prototyping Showcase.
Even if your team does not win a challenge, you can still get funding to build the first version of your prototype!
What if I changed teams for one or more of the challenges?
If you are a student who changed teams for one or more of the challenges, you can still qualify for the $500 prototyping prize by participating in all three challenges. We will help individual students eligible for the award find or form a team with other individuals that qualify. Together and through office hours, we’ll build on all the submissions you made and identify a concept to pursue and prototype during the semester.
