Every spring and fall, hundreds of students from scores of universities around the country flock to hackNY’s student hackathons, where they participate in collaborative and creative coding challenges in a 24-hour coding sprint. The events open with API demos from New York City startups selected by the student organizing committee, after which students work in teams to build projects based on these APIs. Students work around the clock, and the event culminates in a presentation before a panel of judges the next day.
hackNY is excited to announce its eighth student hackathon on September 28th-29th at NYU’s Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
We are excited for this event, and we are looking for sponsors to help us make this happen. For more information on sponsorship and to discuss becoming a sponsor, please contact Team hackNY at [email protected]
Students interested in attending can register on Hackerleague!
This summer, hackNY was able to introduce a stunning cohort of student-hackers from across the country to NYC’s startup ecosystem by pairing the best technical minds with great New York startups.
Fellows enjoyed free communal housing in the special interest suites of one of NYU’s best dorms in Union Square for 10 weeks, a paid internship with one of NYC’s hottest startups, and a series of lectures both about technical and practical ins-and-outs of joining and founding a tech startup.
On Thursday, August 8, 2013, we will be hosting the end of the summer DemoFest, which is the Fellows’ time to share the new products or features they launched at their startups as well as projects developed during the hackNY program.The attendees of the DemoFest include hackNY Fellows and alumni, hackNY 2013 host startups, press, and supporters.
Demofest will be an exciting, well attended event and we’re looking for sponsors.
