The week is organized by Tech@NYU which is a group that puts together technologist and entrepreneurs at NYU to collaborate. This is just one of the many groups at New York University that is spear heading the push to help more young people start businesses.

This type of event is something other schools can learn from. By finding a group of motivated students and providing them with a few mentors they can put together a useful and fun event that brings together some amazing people in the industry. Hopefully more schools will begin to implement things like this in their cities and continue to motive and drive students to start companies and succeed in life.Subscribe to the Podcast
