Join us January 6–11, 2019 for EntreTech NYC, where you can immerse yourself in the NYC digital landscape for a week.

We’ll shadow IT personnel and entrepreneurs in information-based companies like: Google NYC, FourSquare, LinkedIn, Night Agency, Brand Yourself, Vox Media, 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.

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.

Once admitted to the program, you must remain a student in good standing (academic and judicial) to stay eligible to participate in this program.
