Oct 05 - Peninsula

950 W. Maude Ave, Sunnyvale, CA 94085

The Startup Connectors brings together private companies and alums at a high-energy networking fair. Broaden your professional network, meet your future employer, employees, and/or business partners while keeping your fingers on the pulse of the local startup market. The event provides an evening of casual conversations, technical and business discussions while enjoying delicious snacks and beverages and learning from a panel of startup experts.

Benefits to Attendees:

  • Job seekers can survey a wide variety of local startup job opportunities

“I was having a tough time at my previous job. I was stressed, overworked, underpaid. I met a company at MITCNC Startup Connector. In 2 months, I was in new job. I've been there almost 6 months now and am so happy.”

  • Potential investors, advisors, and service providers get a unique window into the technologies and business plans being considered (and funded)

“Next time MITCNC invites you to a Startup Connector, go with an open mind. I found my dream job there”
