What is Utah Startup Marketplace?
At USM local startups are able to tap the talent of BYU’s students for internships and jobs.
USM is targeted toward students from the following disciplines: entrepreneurship, business management, strategy, finance, accounting, marketing, advertising, public relations, information systems, computer science, engineering, information technology, industrial design, and graphic design.
Benefits of Participation
- Gain exposure and access to hundreds of first-class students
- Opportunity to network with other Utah startups
- Chance to partner with BYU in acquiring future student talent
Utah has a dynamic and thriving community of startups. These companies represent the future business success of Utah and beyond. While many Fortune 500 companies recruit regularly at BYU, most local startups do not get this opportunity. USM bridges that gap. USM has four main purposes:
- Build awareness and excitement about Utah’s dynamic and thriving community of startups
- Give BYU students exclusive access to Utah’s renowned entrepreneurial ecosystem
- Provide career opportunities for BYU students at Utah startup companies
- Educate Utah startup companies about the talent-sourcing opportunities at BYU
