SCF is a dynamic, one-day, hybrid event that brings together innovative startup companies from across the United States to showcase their company to the student community at UIUC.
SCF allows students to discover career opportunities and gain possible internships with emerging startups while engaging in meaningful conversations with their potential employers.
SCF's overarching goal is to create connections between college students and the entrepreneurship ecosystem for the overall benefit of both students and startups.
Startups introduce their innovative products and services, providing students with an opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge of their company. Students can develop a comprehensive understanding of the latest trends and developments in the industry, and hone their critical thinking through interaction with more experienced entrepreneurs.
Students can gain valuable insights and practical experience by interacting with a diverse group of startups. They can learn about real-world applications of their academic learning, network with entrepreneurs and business leaders, and explore different industries and sectors.
SCF offers students a platform for deeper engagement, allowing them to delve into the intricate workings of startups and gain valuable insights to better identify potential career paths they might want to explore.
Our primary goal is to serve as a bridge between students and startups, forming connections that are both meaningful and sustainable. At SCF, we're laying the foundation for professional journeys that continue far beyond a single event.
