The Pace Entrepreneurship Studio (PES) is an innovation center at the heart of Pace University. PES' mission is to establish and foster student and alumni innovation and expose and develop new entrepreneurial opportunities. We provide abridged access to venture capital through special and professional sessions with the PES team and leaders from the New York City ecosystem.
At the center of PES, you'll find the "Studio Program," which will help you start a very practical and professional process to make your dreams come true. PES assists and supports young entrepreneurs in establishing new game-changing startups within a professional sphere of academic knowledge.
The process is based on several factors: finalizing your offering and the value proposition, talent, minimum viable product, market access, and funding. These strategic factors are intended to lead companies to their first round of financing.
