Summer 2018 Application
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.
