Creating meaningful connections in the community and finding meaningful work has always been a way to keep university talent in our city. But in a post-coronavirus environment, it has become increasingly difficult to connect students to the people and projects that may entice them to settle down in St. Louis.
We were recently connected with Doug Villhard, serial entrepreneur, and Academic Director for Entrepreneurship at the Olin Business School, to discuss ways in which students can get connected. From this conversation, our first Student Connect Night was born. We’re inviting builders, leaders, founders, and enterprises to meet with the newest class of entrepreneurially-minded Washington University MBAs and help them plug-in to St. Louis’ innovation community.
Who this is for:
- Founders needing help with their venture
- Companies looking to hire for positions or internships
- Community leaders that can make connections and give a warm welcome
How it works:
- Speed networking using Glimpse (new YC-backed startup)
- You’ll be paired with a different student looking to network and intern within St. Louis entrepreneurial ecosystem
- You’ll have 4 minutes to connect with the option to extend the conversation up to an additional minute
