Are you happy at your current job? Have you ever dreamed of working for something and someone you believe in? Have you dreamed of having an impact? Of being heard? Of being part of a small team that can get it done? Have you ever dreamed of working for a startup?
The Techstars Smackdown is a unique event where 13 Techstars companies will pitch for YOU. They’re hiring, they’re feisty, and on October 12th, they’ll battle it out in an attempt to lure you from your current role. Companies will get 5 minutes convince you why it will be the best (or worst) career move you ever make. Anyone caught wearing a suit or tie will be publicly accosted.
