NYU Engineering School To Share Space With Turkish University

PR NewswireNYU Tandon School of Engineering and Boğaziçi University, in Istanbul, Turkey, have signed an agreement to provide BU-affiliated entrepreneurs with a startup gateway in New York, leveraging the city’s burgeoning entrepreneurial landscape and the supportive infrastructure of NYU Tandon Incubators.

The arrangement will provide BU entrepreneurs in the high-tech sector with important insight into the U.S. market, as well as exposure to potential investors, partners, and clients; similarly, companies already in NYU’s incubator system will benefit from networking, discussion, and potential association with BU’s startups. The agreement was signed April 22, 2016, at NYU Tandon.

“I am excited at the possibilities for international entrepreneurial collaboration presented by a partnership with Boğaziçi University,” said NYU Tandon Dean Sreenivasan. “It is gratifying to know that our counterparts inTurkey share our focus on entrepreneurial efforts that can better the world, including bioengineering, urban systems and infrastructure, information and communication systems, and clean energy. By working together, we will encourage activities within those spheres and beyond.”

The NYU Tandon Incubators have forged alliances with international business entities including the German Accelerator, which brings German entrepreneurs to the Varick Incubator; the Berlin Cleantech Business Park and Innovation Center; the Ontario Centers of Excellence, the Danish Cleantech Hub and the Dutch business development group called East Coast Electric.
