Startups Meet Their Match at USC Blackstone Launchpad

We’re still feeling the buzz from our Pitch Night in LA and we figured we should keep the good times coming while continuing to support the Los Angeles’ Startup Scene. We’ve partnered up with another powerhouse, USC Blackstone Launchpad, and our sister company, Motiv Institute to bring bright young grads and exciting new startups together at a reverse interview event.

We are in the process of talking with startups that are interested in participating, so if that’s you, please be in touch! Startups will each get a chance to present an overview of their company and break down their hiring needs. Startups will receive the grads’ resumes in advance of the event and after their presentations, companies will have a chance to meet with any students they’re interested in. This a great chance to mingle with other movers and shakers in LA’s Startup community in addition to the rising young stars at USC Blackstone Launchpad. Students from Blackstone Launchpad programs across universities, including UCLA and UC Irvine will be also be invited and any founders who bring on talent from the event will get heavily discounted space at Opodz Coworking in DTLA for a team of 4.

The date will be announced shortly and the event will take place in mid-July at the USC campus – luau style! Startups that are interested should contact us here. Tell us a little bit about yourself and your company and the best way to get a hold of you! We’re hoping to finalize the line-up by May 20th, so let us know ASAP!
