Organized by Solidea and Connectors Group, NYC ENT was created to strengthen and accelerate the collective entrepreneurial spirit of New York City. The event aggregates disparate organizations, institutional investors, service providers, universities, and early-stage ventures throughout the City, providing a platform which fosters innovation, growth and ultimately creates jobs.

At the center of the week’s events is a 21 team business plan competition with a full day of customized training developed exclusively for the select participants of the event. From these 21 teams, six semifinalists will be chosen by a panel of judges to continue throughout the week, while the seventh wildcard will be voted on by the online community at nycentweek.com. These seven semifinalists will have the opportunity to attend educational workshops throughout the week that will focus on topics that are traditionally difficult for entrepreneurs to master as well as those that all emerging companies need to consider in order to engage investors and successfully run their business. The goal is to coach each early-stage company on the key success factors that allow ideas to launch effectively.
