Is the Festival virtual?

The Festival is hybrid this year! Some events are in person, such as the 2 panels and the Startup Roundtables. The Keynote speakers, Team Hunt, and the Demo Day will be virtual. You are welcome to watch from home or join us at the Leslie eLab where we will be streaming the events!

Can I come to the Leslie eLab to watch the virtual portions?

Yes! We will be screening the virtual events around the Leslie​, and you are welcome to join us!

Is the Festival only for NYU?

Only those who are directly and currently affiliated with NYU can attend the Festival. You must be able to complete the daily screener and produce a green pass in order to attend. 

Where do I find the Zoom links?

Zoom links for each individual event will be added onto the homepage schedule on Wednesday, Oct 13th. Just click on each event block for more info & hit "Join Zoom."


What are the roundtables? How do they work?

  1. Small round-robin discussion groups on various entrepreneurial topics.

  2. Join a new table every 15 minutes with 5 other attendees.

  3. A buzzer will go off to tell everyone to switch to the next table.

  4. If the roundtable already has 5 attendees, you will need to find a new table, or wait for the next round.

What are the panels? How do they work?

  1. These are webinars with a moderator & panelists discussing an entrepreneurial topic.

  2. All panelists are NYU students or alumni.

  3. Audience will not be seen & muted. You can submit questions via Zoom or Slack.

What are some Zoom tips?

  1. Turn your video on when you feel comfortable (if not in a webinar).

  2. Keep your mic on mute to avoid unnecessary background noise.

How does the Festival slack work?

  1. You will be invited to join when you RSVP to the Festival.

  2. This is where important announcements will be made and attendees can ask for help.

Who do I contact if I have questions not in the FAQs?
