CUNY Startups is hosting its first ever hackathon this month! Find out how you can get involved


They’ve just rebranded as CUNY Startups (formerly the CUNY Center for Student Entrepreneurship) and now they’re about to host the first ever CUNY hackathon. This weekend-long 17 hour sprint convenes students from all 25 CUNY schools and from a range of majors, backgrounds and interests to design and build apps intended to make life easier for CUNY students. Think you can come up with creative solutions to overcrowded elevators, redesign the user interface for CUNYPortal, or create virtual study groups with your classmates? Bring your burning idea to Galvanize NYC on October 14-15 and take part in workshops, network with mentors, and compete for amazing prizes such as a drone, VR headset, and more.
