    Meet & Multiply

    Meet & Multiply is a side event taking place at the Sankalp Forum in Nairobi, Kenya on February 21-22, 2019. Adopters and ecosystem partners should apply to attend. The Sankalp Africa Forum is open to all participants. Please visit the website to attend the main Forum.

    Our structured networking methodology is tried and tested! It has already helped entrepreneurs scale from India to Latin America and the Caribbean. We are pleased to respond to requests to bring this format to Africa. Here is how it works. We identify successful businesses with impact and carefully select potential adopters of their model in a new geographic location. We bring the originators and adopters together for a half-day event with the right set of ecosystem partners that can help originators to multiply their impact. Following the event, we provide follow-up support to help facilitate successful replication.

    17th Annual NYU Venture Showcase

    The $300K Entrepreneurs Challenge at NYU is both an accelerator program and startup competition. Hosted by the W. R. Berkley Innovation Labs at the NYU Stern School of Business, its aim is to identify the most disruptive venture ideas at NYU.

    Join us for our 17th Annual Venture Showcase event to meet 37 of this year’s semi-finalist teams. Instead of listening to pitches from afar, you’ll have the opportunity to mix and mingle with the founders directly and engage with their projects up close. From health management technologies to customized culinary offerings to cutting edge sustainability solutions, these ventures represent the most exciting and innovative startups at NYU. NYU alumni, angel investors, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, industry innovators and fans of the startup scene are invited to connect with the entrepreneurial stars of the NYU community.

    This event will take place at NYU Stern’s Tisch Hall. Light hors d’oeuvres and beverages will be served.
