The NY Times Opens Its Offices To Media Startups
timeSpace is a new initiative that will allow 3-5 groups to refine and grow their businesses at the NYT space in Manhattan.
The New York Times is inviting startups to work out of it’s headquarters on 8th Avenue in order to grow their businesses. The newspaper has created the ‘timeSpace‘ initiative, which lets early-stage media companies apply to spend four months in their building.
The New York Times, and media in general, are in the midst of unprecedented change. Our core purpose remains to enhance society by creating, collecting and distributing high-quality news and information. We want to push ourselves and push others to find the best ways to do so, and we believe that timeSpace can be a part of that process.
This residence will be “mutually beneficial” and the startup’s team will be able to meet with NY Times staff, demo their product, teach and learn alongside entrepreneurs and employees who work in digital media, technology, and journalism.
Applications will be accepted until February 19th and after they are reviewed and interviews are held, between three and five compaines will be invited to take part in the program.
