For the fifth time, Spark arranges Join A Startup-night (JASUN). At JASUN, students can find a startup to join and mingle to meet others that are interested in innovation.
– JASUN is a good opportunity to get to know Spark and the innovation milieu at NTNU, says Christian Schultz, event manager at Spark.
Since its establishment in january 2014, Spark has guided and helped over 300 startups and 1000 students. Spark offers non-binding guidance to students that have a innovative idea.
This year’s JASUN will be held on March 13th at FRAM on NTNU Gløshaugen. The aim is to gather students that are interested in joining a startup, and pair them together with already existing startups.
– We have 12 startups from Spark and NTNU School of Entrepreneurship that will be joining us. The startups will get two minutes each to introduce themselves, and then they’ll have stands where the students can speak to them, Schultz tells us.
There will also be several introductory speakers, like Wenche Brenne Drøyvold, CEO of Technoport and Alexander funch from Pineleaf studios.
– Previous JASUNs have been a great success. Usually we have had about 100 people participating only limited by the capacity of FRAM, Schultz says.
– The students that participate get an unique insight in what kind of startups that are in motion at NTNU right now, and they get to know a growing innovation milieu.
These startups will be participating at JASUN:
- Inalto Technologies
- BirdsView AS
- Phonion Technologies
