Primary Market Research (focus groups and surveys)
The TVSP offers participating students the opportunity to
make a tangible positive impact in the regional startup community,
learn directly from community stakeholders including startup founders,
grow their professional network, and
three credits (MGMT680 “Entrepreneurial Strategy”) toward their degree.
New ventures with prototypes or well-defined concepts are encouraged to apply by the start of the semester (by September 5 or January 10). Investors are also encouraged to recommend companies in their portfolios that would benefit from TVSP. TVSP is free to startups, and lasts three months during which time NJIT graduate students and the principals of participating startups meet twice monthly.
Interested students, principals, and investors can reach Cesar Bandera for more information.
