Petition for a university-wide permanent space at NYU’s Washington Square campus to serve as the hub for student technology innovation.
In recent years, New York City has seen a renaissance of technology activity. More technology startups are choosing to grow here than ever before. Necessary to sustain and drive this growth is a local student culture of technology and innovation. To see NYU become the vibrant heart of the student technology culture is what drives Tech@NYU.
For two years, this organization has been the catalyst for students like me to enter and contribute to the burgeoning technology innovation community in New York City.
Tech@NYU is furthering student tech entrepreneurship at NYU
For the past two years, Startup Week (1,000 attendees every semester), DemoDays (100 attendees monthly), DesignDays, HackDays, and workshops (40 students weekly), and the Tech@NYU Digest (4,000 subscribers emailed bi-weekly) serve to inform, encourage, motivate, teach and guide me to build and innovate.
Having a room on campus allows me to study and work on my ideas before and after class. I would utilize the books, hardware, furniture, and equipment that Tech@NYU and its sponsors would provide. I may meet my co-founder there. I may see a peer change the world; we may become good friends.
A student culture must be built from the bottom-up by us students, and we firmly believe that Tech@NYU is the organization that can do this
