Why YouthHack Philly?
We started YouthHack Philly with the goal of helping student founders build real startup companies while still in school. We saw the need for a program that would bridge the gap between having an idea and building a startup.
How do we do this? We have two main programs: The YouthHack FreshStart program for underclassmen who want to learn more about startups and the YouthHack Ventures program, our venture accelerator and venture builder program for students who want to gain real-world startup experience building real startups.
In the works as well is the YouthHack Philly Startup House we're launching in 2017 with the goal of bringing Silicon Valley to the East Coast.
Want to learn more about the Philadelphia startup scene and how to start a startup? The YouthHack Freshstart program is a month-long program to help immerse underclassmen into the Philadelphia startup scene.
Want to join a community of startup founders? Don't have a startup idea but want to gain real world experience and build real companies that make an impact? Get involved with YouthHack Ventures and build a startup while in college!
