Meet the Class of 2017: This Fellowship of 28 students comes from 25 universities, spread over 3 countries and 3 continents! Our Fellows are interning at 22 different New York City startups this summer and learning everything they can about New York’s tech scene. They are an impressive, diverse group, with great tech skills and strong ideas about the future of our industry. Thanks to the generosity of a varied community of supporters, the Fellows program includes community-style housing in Union Square as well as a series of pedagogical lectures introducing the hackNY Fellows to founders, investors, journalists, technologists, and all-around leaders from the NYC startup community. Fellows will be sharing their unique skills with the group by hosting workshops – from neural networks to origami and unicycling to various dance styles! Alumni from the program return to mentor the Fellows during the summer, helping them navigate their new internships, New York City and life in general. This year the Fellows will also be working on several social good projects that use their various backgrounds and technology skills to help others. We are so excited the Class of 2017 is joining our community!
Since 2010, hackNY has partnered with over 100 host startups to host over 200 hackNY Fellows. This year, our 28 Fellows will be hosted by 22 exciting startups. We look forward to continuing the long partnerships hackNY has had with many host startups, and we are also excited to be working with 10 of our host startups for the first time. View all the host startups we’ve worked with and more program details on our Fellows site.

This event commemorates the end of the summer and is a chance for the Fellows to show off the summer projects they worked on, both professionally and personally. Demo Night is open to the tech community, and RSVPs and more information will be coming soon.
