University Students

Do you want a career in Marketing?

Empowering Futures connects talented and driven university students with some of the most exciting start-ups at our CONNECT EVENTS. Attend one of our events and meet start-ups looking for enthusiastic students seeking work-experience or an internship in marketing or business development activities.

Why get work-experience at a start-up? You’ll get the opportunity to truly develop your skills, you’ll be hands on and become part of a smaller team that will also support you and challenge you to give your best.

How it works:

  • Apply and attend one of our CONNECT events
  • Take one of the online digital skills courses provided by our partner Accenture
  • We will introduce you to several start-ups during the event
  • We will guide you how to follow up with the new connections made to secure your work-experience or internship during the summer


  • Expand your network and connect with fast-growing start-ups
  • Learn how start-ups work and scale their innovative ideas
  • Enhance your skills by getting real work-experience
  • Obtain a digital certificate when completing one of the brilliant digital courses provided by our partner Accenture
  • Most of the start-ups are looking for support during the summer from 4 to 12 weeks
