Digital Wesleyan Startup Workshop Series

unnamed

From Dex Blumenthal ’15:

Are you a budding entrepreneur? Want to be considered for a paid, summer-long internship at a startup in NYC or San Francisco? Yeah? Well, listen here:

The first ever Digital Wesleyan Startup workshop series, a free six-session course on tech skills, product development and entrepreneurship is now accepting applications. Sessions will be held on campus Saturdays 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. starting February 15. Here’s a rundown of the curriculum:

  • Introduction to computer science and application design: It’s not actually that hard to build an app. We’ll show you how.
  • Introduction to alums in the industry: Investors, entrepreneurs and executives are coming to campus to share their stories. This is a world where mentors matter, and the Wesleyan network gives you a huge step up.
  • Introduction to startup thinking: How should you design a business that can support the product you want to build? We have answers…

The course is presented by the Digital Wesleyan alumni network with support from the PCSE, Career Center, and WesHack. It will feature coding teachers from the Flatiron School and General Assembly in NYC, as well as speakers from prominent New York-based startups and early stage investment firms. All students who participate in the workshop series will be considered for ten Digital Wesleyan Internships in New York and San Francisco during summer 2014.

This is a unique opportunity with invaluable professional development potential, and all students are encouraged to apply regardless of academic major.
