Geopipe Wins NYU's $300K Entrepreneurs' Competition

Posted by Christopher Mitchell, Ph.D..

On May 5th, we participated in the finals of NYU's $300K Entrepreneurs' Competition. This 8-month-long competition-cum-class introduced student- and faculty-led startup teams to the process of forming a company, performing customer discovery, honing a Startup Plan and an investor pitch, and creating an Explainer Video. As one of four finalist teams competing in the Tech Venture Track, we faced stiff competition and energetic cross-examination from a panel of experts and investors. We're proud to announce that we won the $100K grand prize for the Tech Venture Track, providing a substantial amount of non-dilutive funding that we'll be using to drive Geopipe forward.
