Welcome to the PARTICIPANT application form for Startup Speed Dating 2019, organized by the ETH Entrepreneur Club.
Startup Speed Dating provides a hub for exchange between students and startups. Our mission is to encourage students to explore entrepreneurship as a career option, and to interface with startups that match their interests.
As a participant, you will have an opportunity to meet startups that are offering job opportunities, internships, and Bachelor / Master thesis projects. Thus, at the time of application, you should be seeking these types of opportunities -- many participants have found it useful to bring their resumes and business cards to this event in the past.
At the beginning of the Startup Speed Dating event, each startup will present a 30-second pitch to an audience of 120 highly skilled, carefully selected participants. Following a matching process, participants will have 5 one-on-one "speed dates" with startups, each lasting 6 minutes. The evening will end with an <<Apéro riche>> to continue the mingling and networking.
