About the Event: The New York City Regional Innovation Network (NYCRIN) is a highly interactive innovation and entrepreneurship consortium of over 25 prominent universities in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. As a Node within the National Science Foundation Innovation Corps (I-Corps) program, the goal is to build and leverage the network to improve the innovation ecosystem and academic-based startup success in the NYCRIN region.

This event is an opportunity to meet the NYCRIN leadership team, learn about the node objectives and plans, find out more about the I-Corps program and benefits, and network with the 25+ universities within our node. Attendees will learn how their institutions can take advantage of our growing entrepreneurial ecosystem and how they can benefit by collaborating with neighboring universities.
