The week’s visits furthered, on an incremental but meaningful scale, the mission of Talent Connect. Too often, we find that the startups and tech companies in the area are unaware of all of the talent coming out of Downtown Brooklyn’s colleges and universities, and, similarly, many students are unaware of the growing number of companies that are often within walking distance. These visits give students the opportunity to learn from the hard-won experience of entrepreneurs, and also gives startups direct contact with the drive, ambition, and talent of local students.
We continue our efforts to bridge the gap between these two worlds with our Talent Connect jobs board, with which local tech companies can post jobs and internships. Students are alerted to these opportunities directly through targeted emails and e-newsletters.
