If you are a Colorado undergraduate interested in working as an intern for some of the best startups in Colorado, this event is for you.
Jim Franklin, CEO of SendGrid, will be giving an hour-long crash course on an important entrepreneurial topic: how to build a business out of an idea. The crash course is meant to give a sampling of what interns participating in the Startup Summer program can expect this upcoming summer.
The event will start at 6 pm with the crash course concluding by 7; an hour of networking and refreshments will follow for interested students to ask questions and learn more about the program.
