The New York Times is accepting applications from early stage companies "focused on the media space" to become part of its incubator program, timeSpace. The new initiative involves bringing in early stage companies into The New York Times headquarters to "refine and grow their businesses." The project lasts four months, and companies wishing to apply have until Tuesday, February 19th at 5pm to submit their application.
During the program the company teams will work in the Times headquarters, meet the NYT staff and demo and work on their projects.
"We will review applications in the order in which they are submitted and contact a limited number of companies for interviews. Between three and five companies will ultimately be invited to participate. Our first batch of entrepreneurs will join us soon after, officially launching timeSpace at 620 8th Ave."
The NYT says they will not seek equity in the new companies involved in the program, though "we may become one of your customers during or after your time here. But this is not the purpose of timeSpace."
