ABOUT

WHAT IS HACKSTART?

HackStart reverses the traditional dynamic of recruitment for fast-paced startups in Barcelona area. We bring 20 of Barcelona’s best growth-stage companies and 75 of UPC's students to the Sala Agora for a pitch and networking event designed to connect motivated UPC students with the startup community.

Flipping the traditional career fair on it’s head, we start with a 1-hour pitch session where each startup will get the chance to pitch their company to students. We then have a networking event where the students can meet the companies they like best. The result is an environment that facilitates relationships between the innovative companies and talent they need to make their vision a reality.

WHO WILL BE ATTENDING?

All types of students are welcome to attend and HackStart is advertised as an event for all students. That being said, most of our advertising outreach will be to engineering students.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE?

It you are a startup, please contact us below. We will be in touch with you shortly thereafter with details on how you can be a part of HackStart. If you are an student, please fill the form below.

HOW IS THE PITCH FORMAT?

Startups will have 2 minute to pitch their companies directly to the students. The goal of the pitch is to tell students about your startup and give students the reason why your company is great to work for.
