    Student Recruitment

    Companies are responsible for finding and selecting students that will participate on their teams. VentureShips helps companies advertise through this website, as well hosting the "Kickoff Presentation," during which, the companies give a 10 minute presentation. Students will have their resumes and applications forwarded to their companies of interest. Every company will then submit a list of preferences, and VentureShips will match the students with companies based on mutual preferences. It is imperative that the company preferences are received on time in order to accommodate both parties.

  • Kickoff Presentation: Friday, September 16th, 2011 - from 6:30-8:00pm, in room 2-105
  • Student Selection Deadline: Until Sunday, September 25th, 2011

    Past Companies


    We got some good and surprising information out of the project. I have data points on competitors and other companies in the space I never would have found on my own.
