We’ve talked a lot recently about the amazing amount of talent that exists in universities across the country – and one of the main reasons we launched the Dorm Room Fund was to create a new and more efficient way for capital to flow onto campuses and into the best and brightest entrepreneurs. But we realize that not everyone wants to start a company; many students, instead, would love to join one. But it’s often really hard for students to find the perfect startup jobs. Startups typically don’t recruit/interview on college campuses. And they rarely post job openings for internships. Too often, it is often based on who you know. So a lot of top university talent simply end up taking an internship or full-time job at Google or Microsoft. We don’t think this makes sense.
