Etsy is the world's handmade marketplace. Our mission is to empower people to change
the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses
have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving
everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience.
We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.
We hosted the Summer 2012 session of the Recurse Center in the Etsy headquarters, and provided ten Etsy Hacker Grants of $5,000 each – a total of $50,000 – to women who needed financial support for living expenses. Since 2013, the Recurse Center has been located in SoHo, Manhattan.
The Recurse Center is a free, self-directed, educational retreat in New York for people who want to get better at programming, whether they've been coding for three months or three decades.
We have a tight-knit, diverse, and supportive community of over 700 people. We accept applications on a rolling basis, and you can apply today.
