Office Hours / Informational Interviews

In addition to the workshop, ThinkB1G would like to answer your start-up questions on a one-on-one basis.  We will be hosting Office Hours on Sept. 25th to meet directly with students for 15 minute meetings.  We will take conversations directionally wherever a student would like to go focusing on topics such as: is a startup right for me, what do I need to do to stand out, which startups have openings, how to connect with them, resume critique & feedback, etc. Reservations can be made via iTrack.
