What's Next? V1 Connect — meet Michigan's top student builders & creators 🚀
Join us this Friday to network, learn how you can get involved + get a first look at V1 Platform and restructured V1 Community
One month ago, we launched Startup Fair and brought together 400+ students together to learn about roles at high-growth startups like Ramp, Mage, OpenStore & more.
Now, we can’t wait to bring the community together again.
Join us for V1 Connect, this Friday, March 18th @ 6pm — our biggest community event yet.
Whether you’re new to the start-up scene or a seasoned serial entrepreneur, college is all about meeting people and making connections. So make sure come out to Cahoots, a tech co-working space in downtown (2 minutes from North Quad), for an hour-long night w/ free food, great conversation & V1 stickers✨
We’re also launching V1 Platform, the next evolution of the V1 community. You can now use Platform to connect with members, find out about the most 🔥 events around campus, and be the first to learn about exclusive opportunities to engage with the V1 community.
