Talent + Opportunity

We believe that a startup internship can profoundly impact a student’s professional future, as well as give growing companies a huge boost in talent and capacity. San Antonio’s future economy depends on growing and retaining top talent, and we believe we can help.

By matching companies directly with students looking for work in the startup world, we can lower the cost and risk of hiring, incentivizing more companies to hire and more students to stick around San Antonio.

Our Story

Founded in 2016, Students + Startups is a collaboration between Trinity University, the 80/20 Foundation and Geekdom. In our first year, we connected 15 students with 13 companies. In 2017, we connected 38 students with 29 companies

This year, our goal is to match 60 students with even more companies, and create even more value for the San Antonio economy and growing startup scene!
