hackNY is an initiative to mentor and federate the next generation of NYC tech all-stars. During the summer hackNY organizes the hackNY Fellows program, in which selected fellows are matched with NYC startups able to demonstrate a mentoring environment, with technical needs matched to the skills of the selected Fellow. Fellows also enjoy shared housing and a set of lectures from leaders in the NYC startup ecosystem, including founders, CTOs, and investors.
During the school year hackNY organizes student hackathons to help students learn about opportunities in NYC’s great emerging tech startup ecosystem, as well as to help them meet their fellow members of the student-hacking population.
The success of the 2010 hackNY Fellow program would have been impossible without the active support of the entire NYC tech ecosystem, including numerous founders, CTOs, technologists, educators, investors, and students. Financial support for the 2010 class of Fellows was provided by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. Special thanks to NYU and the Courant Institute for their logistical support both with summer housing and with the hackNY student hackathons. We thank as well Alex Qin and Arikia Milikan for assistance throughout the summer, and thank our summer lecturers: Fred Brooks, Kristina Chodorow, Kushal Dave, Chris Dixon, Ann Miura-Ko, Jonah Peretti, Chris Poole, Martin Wattenberg, and Albert Wenger.
