Let’s face it - in universities all across the world there are students who spend their days undertaking innovative and ingenious research. At the same time there are people who are working in companies who also spend their days trying to innovate and to create new and disruptive solutions to business problems. The two rarely meet - until now that is.
Our latest Startup of the Week is aiming to forge links between academia and business in a new and innovative way. Eulergy is a new platform which directly connects students with industry.
It works in a pretty straightforward way. If you’d like to use it for your business, simply register your organisation’s details, then you can either search for potential projects by current students or add a project request and wait for students to contact you. Eulergy also provides a matching service - in effect it identifies students who best meet your project’s requirements and sets up links between you both. As a student user, you can, once signed up, browse potential projects that have been added by organisations or even add your own project proposals and see what companies may potentially be interested in working with you.
The platform is aimed at all sorts of organisations - from charities, through to Governmental bodies and is providing a truly innovative way for said organisations to collaborate with some of the brightest student minds - well before they graduate.
Here at Startacus we’re pretty fond of collaboration and so it kinda goes without saying that we’re loving what Eulergy is aiming to do. Why not give it a go yourself? We reckon you’ll like what you see…
