Math-Startup Collaborative at Columbia tomorrow

February 28, 2012

The Columbia Chapter of SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) invites YOU to:

Spring 2012 Math-Startup Collaborative Wednesday, February 29 | 6:00 – 8:00 PM | Davis Auditorium, Schapiro Center

Meet Columbia alumni from NYC startups, including Bitly, Foursquare, and Codecademy, and learn about the role of math and engineering in their companies. Students interested in startup careers and internships, or those simply curious to see how math is applied in the wild, are especially welcome. The event, which consists of a series of presentations from our startup members, will be followed by a reception (with free food!). This is sure to be the largest applied math event of the semester!

Startup presenters include:

Space is limited! Contact Ilana Lefkovitz (itl2103@columbia.edu) for more information.

Please RSVP at bit.ly/MathStartup-RSVP-2012 

Co-sponsored by the Application Development Initiative (ADI). Reception sponsored by AOL Ventures.

    It’d be awesome if you could post some highlights from this meeting. In particular, as an OR/stat grad student that likes programming, I’ve been constantly told, “You’ll never need anything you’ve learned past the first year outside of academia. If you don’t want to be in academia you should have just dropped out after getting your master’s degree.” I don’t agree with that advice, but I’d love to hear more datapoints on how true it is.
