this fair because we want students to be exposed to startups, the same as they
are to big companies that come to campus," stated Board Member Juliana Nazare. "I think yesterday's startup career fair went
really well -- I got a couple emails from companies saying that they had
already followed up with students, and are hoping to have Olin interns this

Olin students mingle with the Start-ups
fair is one of the many things the Foundry does. They host local entrepreneurs who deliver
talks on technology, challenges they've faced and companies they've
started. They participate in offsite
career events, Hackathons, conferences and "unconferences," and encourage other
students to do the same. Learn more
