2011 nextNY fellows

Page history last edited by Mike Lewis 12 years, 9 months ago

We are very excited to announce the 2011 nextNY Fellows--an incoming class of new innovation community leaders that will be running events and structural value projects for the nextNY community.  Over 100 people applied for these positions--of which I thought we would have four participants.  I simply couldn't cut it down, so we're going to go with eight people.  These people, among other things, will receive small leadership development stipends, participate in regular private networking events with top Alley innovators, and run targeted community events throughout the year.

Stipends were made possible by the financial support of four organizations with a vested interest in talent development and innovation in NYC:  Betaworks, Square 1 Bank, EnergyHub, and Red Rover.  In addition, Kevin Prentiss, Founder of Red Rover, will be co-organizing the Fellows program with me.

Here are this year's Fellows:
