SCU Startup Expo

Thursday, Mar. 20, 2014

The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) recently hosted its most successful Startup Expo to date, with record attendance by students, alumni and startups.

Held March 5 of this year, the Startup Expo is a distinctive internship and career fair for the SCU community. The Expo provides the opportunity for students and alumni to connect with local startups seeking to hire talented young individuals. This year, hundreds of students and alumni attended, interacting with capacity crowd of 60 startups, some of which were alumni and California Program for Entrepreneurship (CAPE) ventures.

The Startup Expo, co-sponsored by the CIE, the SCU Career Center and the student club Santa Clara Entrepreneurs Organization (SCEO), began four years ago when CIE student Kathy King (BSC ’12), a finance major interested in Entrepreneurship, brought the idea to the Center.
