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.
Founded in 2016, Students + Startups was started in partnership 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.
In 2018, we connected 61 students with 38 companies.
In 2019, we connected 69 students with 39 companies.
This year, our goal is to connect 120 students with even more companies, and create even more value for the San Antonio economy and growing startup scene!
