Welcome to hackNY



hackNY aims to federate the next generation of hackers for the New York innovation community.

Co-organized by faculty from NYU and Columbia, and with a board of advisors which includes educators, technologists, and entrepreneurs, hackNY organizes the summer Fellows program and student ‘hackathons’ during the school year in order to create and empower a community of student-technologists.

hackNY Fellows Program:

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 page.

hackNY Student Hackathons:

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.
