Does your start-up need help with marketing activities like market research, social media support or organising events?

Empowering Futures connects talented and driven university students with some of the most exciting start-ups at our CONNECT EVENTS. We know people are the most important asset of any start-up! At our events you will meet several enthusiastic and self-motivated students looking for a career in marketing. The students are looking for work-experience or internships and we have pre-selected them, and they are ready to collaborate with you during the summer.

How it works:

  • Attend one of our CONNECT EVENTS (1 or 2 people per start-up
  • We will introduce you to several students during our event
  • We will guide you on ways to get the students on board for work-experience or internships
  • Students can support with specific projects or a variety of activities from 4 to 12 weeks during the summer or longer if agreed by both parties


  • We pre-select talented university students looking for marketing work experience
  • Our students get pre-project training on digital skills delivered by our partner Accenture
  • Make Empowering Futures part of your CSR activities and help us empower young talent from minority backgrounds
  • It is super affordable and cost effective to attend to our events
