News Story

Are you a Pace student with a business idea you want to test out? Want up to $7,500 to do it? Apply by October 20!

It’s never business as usual at the Entrepreneurship Lab. Thanks to a generous grant, Pace University has established the Ted and Pat Levine Proof of Concept Entrepreneurship Initiative to provide competitive cash awards to Pace students and recent alumni/ae (who graduated in the last two years) interested in performing proof of concept work. Grants of up to $7,500 will be available to help budding entrepreneurs try out business ideas and support work to better understand if a product or service idea can be transformed into a successful entrepreneurial venture. Managed by the Pace University Entrepreneurship Lab (eLab), the Levine Initiative is designed to provide funds and support to help promote new business development.

The deadline to apply is Monday, October 20. To learn more about the initiative and to apply, visit
