Tsai CITY supports student innovators

Ten student teams will spend eight weeks this summer at Tsai CITY (Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale)  as part of CITY’s Summer Fellowship, an intensive accelerator to incubate new companies, nonprofits, and initiatives. To help push their ideas to the next level, each team will receive $15,000 in grant funding and will take part in a rigorous sequence of workshops, sprints, mentorship, coaching, and pitch opportunities. Tsai CITY, supported by a major donation from the Joe and Clara Tsai Foundation, draws university resources into closer partnership with each other; complements curricular programs; and provides a venue for students to develop innovation.
