Jumpstarting Aspiring Developers and Entrepreneurs (JADE) is a week-long immersive program for first-year students of all backgrounds in the tech and startup ecosystem of NYC.
Through visits and discussions with companies of varying sizes which span numerous industries, students will gain insight to the growth of startups and how they can dive into the tech and entrepreneurship space. Web development lessons will guide participants in acquiring tangible skills through building their own websites. By meeting and networking with founders, investors, and company employees, participants will learn how these skills can translate into future professions. In previous years, JADE participants have visited companies such as Google, Facebook, Spotify, New York Times, Flatiron Health, General Catalyst, and Rent the Runway.
Together, participants will also explore NYC through various activities, building a community with other passionate students.
The 2019 program will take place from Sunday, January 13, to Saturday, January 19.
