Startup Internship Meet and Greet

November 10, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Looking for something different?

Not your typical college career fair, this session is open to startups located in the piedmont area of North Carolina – and all UNC-Chapel Hill and Central Carolina Community College students. Startup founders will be given the opportunity to pitch their company, their open positions and why you should work for them.

As a student, you’ll have the chance to talk directly with startups that are looking to meet students who have innovative minds, a passion for problem solving, computer science and other technical skills, and an entrepreneurial spirit. If you’re searching for an internship, a potential job or opportunities to simply learn what entrepreneurship is all about, this session is a chance to jumpstart your professional journey. This event is casual and informal.


Who should attend?

•Students who:

o Are currently enrolled at UNC-Chapel Hill or Central Carolina Community College.

o Want to learn more about entrepreneurship and what it’s like to work at a startup.

o Are interested in making connections with a diverse group of startup founders.

o Seek internships working at a startup company or social venture during 2021 or 2022.

• Startups that:

o Have fewer than 50 employees.

o Are located in the central region of North Carolina.

o Have completed customer discovery and are preferably revenue generating.

Covid precautions will be followed. Updates will be emailed to registered attendees closer to the date of the event. Questions or changes to company registrations can be directed to kimi.yingling@unc.edu.
