NYU Startup Week: Hacking Your Career
Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 6:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Every semester, Tech@NYU hosts Startup Week, a week-long series of events, kicked off by the HackNY 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!
On October 2nd, the day will be Hacking Your Career, and it will be organized by the EIA at the incubator!
We hosting four speakers from very different backgrounds.
Listen to these unique people and how they hacked their career and are where they are today. Pick up on some of their techniques to discovering what they love doing and stick around for networking with pizza!
