Unique and overlapping roadmaps for Yale students to navigate Tsai CITY offerings. These pathways are intended to be guideposts and are intentionally designed to converge and merge at points of mutual interest.


Tsai CITY programs offer diverse entry points to innovation and entrepreneurship, from drop-in sessions to multi-week, application-only programs. Whether you have a big idea you’re ready to build on or just want to explore the tools of innovation, we can help you get there.

We’re here to help you take action and get your innovative ideas into the world. Tsai CITY offers several funding streams, and we can connect you to prizes and other funding sources across campus.


We offer two primary tracks for mentorship: office hours — regular, in-person opportunities for you to chat with our mentors in residence to get feedback or advice, learn more about Tsai CITY, or talk through other things on your mind — and connections with our broader mentor network.
