What is Startup2Students?

Startups2Students reverses the traditional dynamic of recruitment for fast-paced startups in the Boulder/Denver area. We bring 20 of Boulder/Denver’s best growth-stage companies and 150 of CU Boulder's students to the Idea Forge for a pitch and networking event designed to connect motivated CU students with the startup community. Flipping the traditional career fair on it’s head, we start with a 1-hour pitch session where each startup will get the chance to pitch their company to students. We then have a networking event where the students can meet the companies they like best. The result is an environment that facilitates relationships between the next billion dollar companies and talent they need to make their vision a reality.

Who will be attending?

All types of students are welcome to attend and Startups2Students is advertised as an event for all students. That being said, most of our advertising outreach will be to engineering & business students

How to participate?

It you are a startup, please apply below. We will be in touch with you shortly thereafter with details on how you can be a part of Startups2Students

What is the format of the pitch?

Startups will have 2 minute to pitch their companies directly to the students. The goal of the pitch is to tell students about your startup and give students the reason why your company is great to work for.
