About the NYC Startup Job Fair
The NYC Startup Job Fair aims to connect qualified students and recent graduates with exciting and innovative New York-based startups. The event is largely run by volunteers looking to foster a thriving startup community and to raise awareness about startup jobs in NYC.
The event was founded by Alex Horn in 2010 and is currently managed by Patrick Duggan.
“New York City is finally assuming its rightful first-place position as the national leader in the high tech sector. These start-ups are evidence that Silicon Alley is alive and well in our city and that there is so much creativity and economic activity happening right now; they’re hiring now. We in government need to make sure we’re up to the task of providing the help they need to find good talent and I’m excited to see over 1000 job seekers applied to be a part of the NYC Startup Job Fair.”
