Happy Thanksgiving!

Just like you, we're excited for the opportunity to take some time off before finals and spend time with our family and friends. Here are some holiday events and resources to keep your calendar busy through the holidays. 


More Resources for Entrepreneurs from Wiggin and Dana

Our International Startup Panel and Showcase was such a success, many of you want more info. Panelist Najia Khalid from Wiggin and Dana has graciously shared with us their New Venture Kit for entrepreneurs and an overview of employment visas for international students. We're working with them to put together a guide tailored to NYU entrepreneurs. If you have suggestions on what it should include, email our VP of Communications. For questions about the guides, email Wiggin and Dana partner Scott Kaufman.

Featured Startup: Whim

Whim, a new NYU startup has just launched it’s mobile app that aims to help college students hang out on an impulse. The founders, students themselves, found it difficult to figure out which friends were nearby and available to grab coffee or get a quick bite to eat – so they built Whim. The application shows you which friends are available, lets you join in on what your friends are doing around you, and makes hanging out with friends so much easier! You can check Whim out here and get the new app here.
