What is EntreTech NYC?
In recent years, Silicon Alley has emerged as a hotbed of start-up tech activity. Join us May 14–19, 2017 for Entretech NYC, where you can immerse yourself in the NYC digital landscape for a week. We'll visit and interact with companies, alumni, and investors in Manhattan, shadowing IT personnel and entrepreneurs in information-based companies like: Google NYC, FourSquare, Gilt Groupe, Kickstarter, Quirky, Night Agency, Brand Yourself, HuffPost Live, Arkadium, and more.
Entretech NYC is designed to give students a firsthand look at the companies, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and way of life (both personal and professional) in Manhattan, New York City. This program is open to students from all majors, all schools and colleges, and all degree programs. Students must enroll for three undergraduate or graduate credits.
Entretech NYC is a competitive program with limited space. Applications are due by 11:59 PM on February 1.
To be considered for admission, you should have, at the time of application, a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.00 on a 4.00 scale. In addition to GPA, we place a strong emphasis on your Experiential Learning statement, to be submitted as part of this application. We are also asking for applicants to submit a short video describing what they envision as the ideal company or organization to visit on this trip. These details are all contained in the application.
Students who participate in this program are expected to not only represent themselves well, but also act as strong ambassadors for Syracuse University. In order for this opportunity to be made available to future students, current students must work to ensure that we are invited back to the companies who host us during this event.
Admissions decisions are based on a full review of the application file, including the transcript, resume, the Experiential Learning statement, short video, and any disciplinary records. Once admitted to the program, you must remain a student in good standing (academic and judicial) to stay eligible to participate in this program.
Costs, Credit, and Contact Information
$550 per student. All interested students should apply, regardless of their ability to pay. The iSchool will work to make this program accessible to all who want to attend.
