Hosted by Brown University's Department of Computer Science and organized in collaboration with Hack@Brown and Brown Entrepreneurship, Startup@Brown is a weekend-long conference from September 26-27 that aims to bring together innovative startups and talented students.
Startup@Brown will include Talks (speakers include trailblazing founders, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists), a Startup Fair (students can walk around, meet with startups, and learn about their work, challenges, and career opportunities), Small Group Conversations (lively discussions with startup leaders in groups of 10-12), and Workshops (everything from scaling a tech stack to starting a company as a student).
"Our goal is to expose students to the startup world and connect them with startups and leaders in the community," says Valentin Perez, Startup@Brown's lead organizer. "It's also a recruiting event where students can actually get a sense of the cultures and meet leaders from each startup. Our motivation is that as Brown students, while we get a lot of exposure to larger companies, we don’t often hear about the exciting work startups do and the challenges they face. Come learn about startups and their stories and leave with a new perspective and your next summer internship or full-time job!"
