whether you are regular visitors of the Greenhouse or you’ve just joined NYU, and have just found about us, we would like to welcome to the Greenhouse, a collaborative space that stimulates interdisciplinary collaboration, prototyping and innovation. The culture of the Greenhouse aims to nurture seedlings of ideas and bring ideas to life through iteration and experimentation.
The Greenhouse is a space, it is also a program with many talks, workshops and skill shares. It is also a place where you can find like-minded people, resources, and connections to other schools. This space is hosted, managed and “guarded” by two students every semester. This Fall, our Greenhouse guardians are Yuan Wang and Nikhil (see below for their bio).You can find one of them every day in the space. Please don’t hesitate to go and ask them questions, or come up with suggestions or an idea for a new workshop or speaker.
Make sure to follow our blog to know more about our upcoming events.
Looking forward for a great semester!
The Greenhouse team
Note: While we are located in the basement NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, our space and events are open to students from all schools at NYU.
Hi, I am Yuan. I am an Electrical Engineer by training. I grew up in China and spent past few years in New Mexico, mainly focus on research in information and coding theory. Yes, the land of enchantment, the land of breaking bad.
Now I am doing my master in Management of Technology and in the transition to more design driven field. I joined the Greenhouse since last August and learned more than I could imagined during the time working here. Greenhouse is a prototype, but more than that, it is growing and evolving all the time. We see changes along the journey, incremental but significant.
I am Nikhil, a young professional with a craving passion to innovate. I strive to make difference through creative ideas and effective implementation strategies. I have an interesting history of settling in different places. Raised in Hyderabad (India), Worked in Dubai (UAE), now pursuing my Masters in Management of Technology at NYU Polytechnic School of engineering.
As a frequent “brainstormer” I cannot find any place better than Greenhouse where one can can sit down, brainstorm and collaborate ideas. It is a great platform for budding entrepreneurs which excites me to work for this space. As a proud guardian of GreenHouse, I am looking forward to be a part of the journey of these young innovators.
