The nextNY Fellows Program


Announcing the 2011 nextNY fellows!


To mark the 5th anniversary of nextNY--our participant driven community group of up and coming innovators, we're announcing a new leadership development program.  At the end of the month, we will announce four nextNY Fellows--aspiring innovation leaders who will use our organizational platform to contribute to the community and develop their own leadership skills and connections. 


Here's what they will get:


- A $500 stipend for 2011 to be used on leadership development.  This can include classes, training, books, conferences, Meetups., etc.

- Monthly small group lunches with leaders in the innovation community--like venture capital firms and successful entrepreneurs.

- An opportunity for visibility--press & PR, community awareness, networking connections.


Their responsibilities:

- Maintain a digital presence (Twitter, blogging) that represents the NYC innovation community in a positive, professional manner--highlighting events, people, projects and stories of interest.

- Run two nextNY events (e.g. community conversation roundtables, meetups, conversations, networking events) on any specific topic of interest.

- Adopt a nextNY "structural value" project (e.g. fix our blog, improve leadership/job opportunity listings, launch calendar, etc)

- Encourage active participation on our listserv. 


Applications are Due on Thursday, January 20th at 11:59PM.
