Tech@NYU is a student-led entrepreneurship club at NYU that thinks students need to build stuff. Lots of stuff. Sitting around and talking about the stuff doesn't count, winning contests with the stuff doesn't count, only shipping the stuff counts.
Ship often. Ship lousy stuff, but ship. Ship constantly.
This is a list of the stuff Tech@NYU members and alumni have shipped.
A website builder based on twitter hashtags.
An online conversation platform. In addition to co-founder Hursh (founder of Tech@NYU’s HackDays), employed two Tech@NYU alumni. Raised $2m from Obvious Corporation, Lerer Ventures, and SV Angel.
A weekend workshop for teaching the Lean Startup method. Events every weekend worldwide, including London, Istanbul, Lahore and Toronto.
A charity event that raised over $100k for local non-profit hackNY. Over 1500 attendees at the Armory, with many NYC companies like Turntable.fm, Birchbox and Union Square Ventures providing support.

Assembled with the utmost care and attention under the supervision of highly-trained pixel craftsmen, Heads Up!

A platformer game that takes place (half) in the future. A split-screen view shows the future on the top half, and the present on the bottom, creating interesting and mind-bending puzzles that require a lot of thinking ahead.
A synthesizer for mobile devices. Featured as one of Gizmodo’s favorite Windows 8 apps. Available for iOS and Windows Phone.
Tech@NYU wants students to build stuff together. It takes a lot of scars, experience, and bad ideas to finally get to a great product, so Tech@NYU is like a big sandbox - a place for experimentation, play, and, well, shipping.
We do a lot of events too - monthly DemoDays where we show off our work, weekly HackDays where we learn together, and semiannual Startup Weeks where we listen to some big-name speakers.
If you're a student in New York City that's interested in the intersection of startups, entrepreneurship, coding, art and design - we want you to join us.
If you're an NYC startup looking to give back to the student community, we also want to find ways you can help.
