Are you a small company looking for BIG talent?

On March 2, 2009 the University of Washington’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship will host Springboard, an annual networking event designed to bring the founders/CEOs of Puget Sound’s dynamic early-stage companies together with entrepreneurially-minded students from the University of Washington.

Time: 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM

How can early-stage companies to attract young talent out of the University? We know you’re looking for people who are the right fit, have the same entrepreneurial drive and determination to succeed that you have, and possess a skill set that enables them to do whatever needs doing. Springboard gives you a chance to recruit for just those people at the University of Washington.

Who are the students? They are undergraduates, MBAs, non-business graduate students who have taken the entrepreneurship core curriculum, law students, etc., who know their careers will be entrepreneurial. And they’re looking for an opportunity within a dynamic, quick-paced environment. Students start thinking about their summer internships and job possibilities in early spring, so our timing is perfect!

Springboard will be limited to 45 early-stage/rapid-growth companies, so we ask that you register to attend as soon as possible. The fee per company to participate is $35.

How will this work? Just complete registration through Brown Paper Tickets with the link below. You only need to purchase one registration or “ticket” for your company, regardless of how many colleagues you bring to the event. Once your company is registered, you’ll receive confirmation from CIE with event logistics. We will provide each company with access to the resumes of students attending Springboard a week before the event, giving you time to look through them and earmark those most qualified for your upcoming positions or internships.
