hackNY aims to federate the next generation of hackers for the New York innovation community.
Co-organized by faculty from NYU and Columbia, hackNY has since February 2010 organized the hackNY Fellows program and hackNY student hackathons during the school year in order to create and empower a community of student-technologists.
The summer Fellows program pairs quantitative and computational students with startups which can demonstrate a strong mentoring environment: a problem for a student to work on, a person to mentor them, and a place for them to work. Students enjoy free housing together and a pedagogical lecture series to introduce them to the ins and outs of joining and founding a startup. For more information, please visit our Fellows Program website.
hackNY organizes once-a-semester student hackathons: 24-hour coding events in which NYC startups present their technologies and students build original applications based on them. Winning teams have presented at the New York Tech Meetup. Sign up for the hackNY news for announcements about how to get involved and visit our Hackathon page.
