This is my first post from the wordpress iPhone app. I’m at sxsw and thought I’d try it.
Startup2student happened at CU engineering on Thursday night. We had a great turnout of about 50 students, several professors, and about 15 local startups.
Our goal was twofold – to create awareness among CS students about the startup scene here and the life path of entrepreneurship, as well as to match up potential interns with the companies this summer.
As part of the event, five or six “under 30” founders shared their startup stories. Many did a great job of explaining why it’s best to do your own startup when you’re young. Their passion was intense, and I think the students picked up on that.
The feedback was great, and I hope we can do this event at least annually. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen!
