We are thrilled to announce the upcoming NYC Business Plan Competition hosted by Long Island University, where students will pitch their businesses to a panel of judges. In support of these young entrepreneurs, MakerBot will host a 3D printing and design Mentorship Day at its headquarters on March 17. At the Mentorship Day, we invite all participating teams to attend and receive hands-on 3D printing experience, as well as learn more about subjects like software, manufacturing, and marketing from MakerBot’s in-house experts. Working with 3D printing develops strong design thinking skills, and offers powerful prototyping and concept modeling capabilities that are especially valuable for startups and entrepreneurs.
Students will compete in categories like Clean Technology, Software, and Advanced Technology, with twelve teams advancing from the regional competition to the state competition. There teams will compete to win a grand prize of $100,000 in seed money.
Sign up for the NYC Business Plan Competition by March 10. Then join us at MakerBot headquarters on March 17 for a crash course in 3D design and printing!
