Around the country, there are thousands of students looking for real-world experience and countless businesses in need of people with digital skills. It makes sense for students and businesses to work together, however, the traditional approach is failing to properly serve either side at the moment. Too many students are missing out, whilst many businesses simply don't know how to engage with students. We've reinvented the system to make it simple for both sides to gain serious benefits from working together. Our approach is focused on clear structure and hands-on support to ensure positive outcomes for everyone involved! The Upstart Academy is the result of more than 2 years of intensive market research and 3 leading accelerator programs. We thank all of our partners for their ongoing contribution.
