The Stern Venture Fellows (SVF) program supports NYU Stern's high potential entrepreneurs in advancing their venture over a customized summer program. Fellows will spend ten weeks, full-time, developing their startup ideas and nascent businesses with the guidance and support of NYU Stern’s faculty & staff, alumni, and bi-coastal mentor community.
This is not your ordinary cookie cutter summer entrepreneurship program. It’s an opportunity for you to set measurable goals and achieve them with the support and many resources of the NYU Stern network.

$10,000 stipend for living expenses
Access to additional funds for prototyping
Workspace for selected fellows the entire duration of the program
Advisory services in business development, legal, marketing, accounting, and more
One-on-one mentorship and coaching from NYC & San Francisco entrepreneurs and investors
