WHAT IS UTAH STARTUP MARKETPLACE?

At USM local startups are able to tap the talent of BYU’s students for internships and jobs.

USM is targeted toward students from the following disciplines: entrepreneurship, business management, strategy, finance, accounting, marketing, advertising, public relations, information systems, computer science, engineering, information technology, industrial design, and graphic design.

BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATION
