Genius NY Finals: Five Teams. One Night. $3 Million

April 9 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Don’t miss GENIUS NY Finals Night, where five exciting drone startup companies will pitch their technologies to a panel of judges before a live audience, as they compete for a total of $3 million in cash prizes, including a $1 million grand prize.

The five GENIUS NY finalists are developing technologies in the unmanned aerial systems (UAS) space. Judges will score the companies based on factors such as technology success, company growth potential and future job creation. The first place team receives $1 million while the remaining four each receive $500,000 to support their continued growth.

Now in its third year, GENIUS NY helps grow UAS startups in Central New York, creating new jobs for the region. The program is one of the world’s largest accelerators for UAS, placing Central New York on the map as a world leader in UAS.

GENIUS NY is funded by Empire State Development and housed at CenterState CEO’s The Tech Garden.
