This is the premise of Students and Start-ups. We have had 11 previous events with 24 confirmed hires many of which are on our YouTube Channel (TheCodeFactory).
There are 6 start-ups signed up for SNS-12: Blindside Networks, Brierwood Design, Magnetic Bear Studio, Norada, Nuvoshift and tindr. A great mix of web and mobile start-ups something for Computer Scientists and Software engineers looking for that early stage excitement.
These are what a like to call one room start-ups or those cute and cuddly toddlers of the start-up world. You know what they say “they don’t stay little for long”. This is a great chance to get in on some ground floor opportunities but this is not for the faint of heart ... while exhilarating there is risk with early stage companies.
There will be a few more students and start-ups in the coming weeks ... one event aimed at those slightly more mature start-ups that are more than toddlers but not quite Multi-National corporations yet. There will be another event focused on hardware start-ups too.
If you are a start-up large or small are looking to connect with students please feel free to get in touch.
