Devoted to cultivating the community of software engineers living in and around New York City, hackNY runs community-building hackathons as well as a marquee summer fellowship that combines internships with networking and cohort training in practical career skills. As a complement to summer intern programs run by Google and Facebook, the hackNY internship program specifically works with start-up companies that do not have the resources to run their own efforts. Funds from this grant provide operational support for hackNY for two years.
