We have CONNECT EVENTS in different cities in the UK, we host events around May and June to allow start-ups and entrepreneurs take their connections to the next level and agree if they want to collaborate together during the summer.
We suggests two options for the start-ups and students to work together:
A) Internship – This is usually full-time opportunity and the start-ups pay minimum wage to the students for his/her work. They decide for how long they want to work together and establish their own schedule, targets, etc.
B) Work-experience – This is usually a part-time opportunity (no more than 14hrs per week for a maximum of 12 weeks) the start-ups only pay for transportantion and lunch. Both parties decide the days they will collaborate together and set realistic targets, etc.
