Start up at the top at the New York Times’ start-up incubator

It was just last week we were bitching about the fact that there doesn’t seem to be any space for start ups in the city. Lo and behold, here comes the extremely intriguing idea of building your start up in the New York Times building, with timeSpace, their new start up incubator. No more P.O. boxes for your corporate mailing address!

Obviously, because it’s a very old institution, the Times isn’t looking for someone with a half-baked idea and no funding to take up space and drink David Carr’s coffee when he isn’t looking. But! You can do that if your idea at least has some seed funding and you can convince the Times that you have the next social media breakthrough. The Times says they’ll provide a place for you to demo your product and have access to professionals who work in journalism and technology. And presumably you won’t have to keep buying small cups of coffee at the shop so they don’t kick you out.

The paper will be picking between three and five companies for the program, so you don’t have to go all out and slash everyone’s tires. But it couldn’t hurt to be a little ruthless. If you you think you’ve got what it takes, apply on their site before February 19th. And if you don’t get in? Well screw those jerks, the Brooklyn Public Library has your back.
