Today’s engineers are as likely to work for a startup or small company – whether it’s in the technology industry, medical devices, business services, or other fields – as they are for a major organization. That dynamic is not only changing the nature of the engineer’s career path but the industry as a whole. Now over 30 million business are considered small with less than 500 employees, making up over 99% of all businesses in the US.

The Entrepreneurship & Startup Community is designed to keep students informed about relevant industry news and connect them with related opportunities.
