For students passionate about social change and developing the skills necessary to turn their ideas into action, we are excited to announce that ELab has teamed up with the DO School and 10 other NYC higher education institutions to create a new landmark program within New York City’s higher education landscape: Innovate NYC.  This program offers students from the participating universities and colleges a unique opportunity to launch their careers as change-makers within their communities and learn invaluable entrepreneurial skills. Through a curated co-creation method, together with 19 other participants you will tackle a real-life challenge set by the City of New York: to find new and innovative approaches for a world class industrial park to engage its workers in ways that save the environment and build community across the city. 

The first 100 students to submit their application will automatically receive invitations to the first skills-building workshop, a day-long event focusing on enhancing your capacity for ideation.

The first step crucial to social innovation.  Apply now!

PS: First 100 Applicants enter a chance to win a FREE Workshop.
This is a skill building session will focus on developing students’ ideation skills.
