Thank you for supporting hackNY!

Your contribution supports the future of NYC.

hackNY could not exist without your support. By contributing to hackNY, you support our summer Fellowship program for talented and diverse students from all over the country. In addition to matching Fellows with inspiring startups in the NYC community, we provide housing, a welcoming and inclusive community of Fellows and AlumNY, and an educational lecture series that teaches students technical and leadership skills. Our Fellows go on to be leaders and volunteers in the NYC tech ecosystem, ready to contribute to the future of technology and the community.

hackNY student hackathons attract bright technology students from around the country, encouraging them to learn and build in a mentorship-focused environment. We work for inclusivity at hackNY hackathons, and emphasize exploration and technical growth. At hackNY hackathons, students form positive relationships with one another and with mentors from NYC tech companies.

Our Mission

hackNY aims to federate the next generation of hackers for the New York innovation community. We believe that by empowering students to realize their ideas and form bonds with each other and our city, we can impact the future of technology and the community.

During the summer hackNY Fellowship, Fellows learn to be fearless innovators and strong contributors to their teams. They go on to give back through mentorship of younger students, community leadership, and starting their own local companies.
