About NYU Startup Week
Every semester, Tech@NYU hosts Startup Week, a week-long series of events, kicked off by theHackNY Hackathon and ending with a bang with DemoDays. This fall, we are partnering up with EIA@NYU-Poly, NYU EEX, and Parsons to further expose NYC students to the larger tech community in the city.
This semester's theme is "Hacking as a Mentality." Not just in the coding sense though - hacking is the process by which one uses skill, experience, and alternative thinking to leverage a situation for some benefit or value.
NYC is rapidly turning into a "hacking capital" with a recent massive growth in tech startups and venture capital. Understanding how one can learn to be a "hacker," applying those "hacking" skills, and succeeding are very powerful notions to be explored during NYU Startup Week.
We are all looking forward to your presence - NYU Startup Week will be an amazing opportunity to learn from the best, meet others who share similar passions, and push you to translate that into action!
When & Where
To get there, we need students continually building, to learn and internalize the nuances of great product and business. Tech@NYU is the sandbox that students need: a place to experiment, a forum for recognition, a community for discussion and sharing, and a stage for inspiration.
We also engage regularly with a number of NYC entrepreneurs who serve as mentors to students. Only a couple years old, Tech@NYU is one of the most diverse, most forward-moving student organizations in NYC.
