About Us

Startups2Students reverses the traditional dynamic of recruitment for fast-paced startups in the Boulder/Denver area. We bring 20 of Boulder/Denver’s best growth-stage companies and 150 of CU Boulder's students to the Idea Forge for a pitch and networking event designed to connect motivated CU students with the startup community. Flipping the traditional career fair on it’s head, we start with a 1-hour pitch session where each startup will get the chance to pitch their company to students. We then have a networking event where the students can meet the companies they like best. The result is an environment that facilitates relationships between the next billion dollar companies and talent they need to make their vision a reality.

Event FAQs

All types of students are welcome to attend and Startups2Students is advertised as an event for all students. That being said, most of our advertising outreach will be to engineering & business students
Please use the Get Involved section above to give us your contact information and we will be in touch with you shortly thereafter with details on how you can be a part of Startups2Students
The pitch is a brief 2 minute pitch directed from startups directly to the students. You can use powerpoint in your presentation, but know that you will be limited to 2 minutes. The goal of the pitch is to tell students about your startup and give students the reason why your company is great to work for.
It will be a relaxed, casual environment, no need to dress up.
