hackNY

Unnamed-1I am a big fan of hackNY.  I was delighted to speak to their class last year.  It is that time of year again where they are taking applications for the class of 2013.  The applications must be submitted by March 20th.  See info below.  Click here for details . 

Submit your startup


The hackNY Fellows program, now entering its fourth year, is an
intense, structured program designed to introduce talented students to
NYC’s startup community by pairing the best technical minds with great
New York startups. hackNY Fellows have participated from all over the
US, Europe, and Canada, and have included students with coding talents
in front-end, back-end, data science, machine learning, and design and
UX/UI.


Startups applying to work with a hackNY Fellow are making a commitment to the following:

  • – to provide a concrete problem for the Fellow to work on,
  • – to provide a specific person to mentor the fellow, and
  • – to provide a place for the Fellow to work — the startup must at least have dedicated coworking space if not an office.


THE DETAILS:


If you are successfully matched with a hackNY Fellow:
host startups pay at least $800/week for 10 weeks to the Fellow and
$3,000 to hackNY, which covers the direct cost of hosting their Fellow
(housing and summer programming). As in previous years, hackNY works to
support all scales of NYC startup and will be providing aid to startups
which can show evidence of a strong mentoring environment but for which
this commitment is incompatible with the current level of funding.
Please email scholarships@hackNY.org for more information.


If you are not successfully matched with a hackNY Fellow:
we still want you to find a great intern. As with our prior three
years, student applications and startup applications will be processed
by HackMatch (an algorithmic matching) and informations exchanged, with a
ranked list of matches and a list of technical compatibilities.

Please submit applications before 11:59 pm NYC time Wednesday March 20
