I’ve joined TechStars NYC as a HackStar
Well, my search for a cofounder wasn’t going very well, so I decided to join the TechStars NYC class as a HackStar.
What does this mean?
HackStars are a group of a few people that help out the main companies with work throughout the program. Every week or so you choose to work with a different company and see if you can help them somehow.
Why am I doing this?
I think it’s an amazing opportunity to work with a lot of really smart and diverse people, to learn a whole lot about how the sausage is made and build long lasting relationships within the TechStars community.
That’s what I thought when I joined the program and now that I’m a few days in it, my expectations are blown away, it’s even cooler than I thought it would be and I think I can learn something from each and every one of the companies in this class. I’ve already been blown away by the internals of it all, the people that I will be working with, the other HackStars.
The cherry on top
And to top it all, the energy is simply amazing, it’s incredible to work next to so many talented and enthusiastic people, I find it incredibly contagious and it really energizes me.
It’s going to be a fun three months!
