Upcoming Ithaca PSW

The next Pre-Seed Workshop is scheduled for March 13, 14, and 21, 2017 in Weill Hall on Cornell's Ithaca, NY campus.


Refer to the PSW Overview to see whether your idea would benefit from the workshop. 

This handy table will help you to decide whether you will benefit from the Pre-Seed Workshop at this time.

If our next PSW does not work with your schedule, we refer you to other upcoming Regional Pre-Seed Workshops. 


Note on Commitment:

  1. This workshop will lead you through significant thickening of your business idea. As such, it requires attendance for the entirety of the workshop days and 5-20 hours of homework between Day One and Day Two.
  2. If your business idea is accepted into the workshop, a $1,500 fee for participation will be required. The fee can be waived for Cornell related teams through sponsorship arranged by the Cornell Center for Life Science Enterprise. Women and minority led idea teams are encouraged to apply.
