Startup Institute Featured in WSJ
Today was a good news day for Startup Institute. We were mentioned in The Wall Street Journal as a resource for students looking to join fledgling companies in lieu of attending a full-time business school program. Our NY director, Christina Wallace, was the first to spot (and Tweet on our behalf).

Here’s what WSJ had to say about us:
"The year-old Startup Institute, which runs eight-week programs in Web development, marketing and other subjects, expanded earlier this year from its Boston base to New York and Chicago, and similar organizations are opening in Washington, D.C., and elsewhere around the country.
About 300 students have cycled through Startup Institute’s course, in which students spend three days a week on a track, such as design and business development, with the other two days working on team projects. For example, students recently helped advise Twitter Inc.’s Bluefin Labs, which analyzes tweets about TV shows, on storing and sharing customer data.”
