The Startup Speed Dating Event is an initiative of ETH Entrepreneurship Club. Every year, the Club brings together talented students who are looking for job opportunities and experiences in the entrepreneurial ecosystem with startup companies looking for new team members. The event will take place on 19 October at ETH Zurich. Applications may be submitted not later than 9 October.
“We typically invite 30 startups to the speed dating. Each one of them will have the opportunity to pitch in front of the audience and then engage in 12 speed dates during the evening. On the other hand, we select around 120 students who match the expectation of startups”, says Timothee Barattin, marketing at Entrepreneurs Club.
At the beginning each startup will present their 30 second pitch to provide insight on their startup idea to the crowd. After the pitches the students and aspiring candidates pick out their favourite startups for speed dates that follow. The Startup Speed Dating allows students dive into the world of entrepreneurship and startups connect with the highly qualified and ambitious students. This is the hub for exchange between students and startups.
