Benefits for startups

Recruitment Pipeline

Internship programs serve as a pipeline for identifying potential future employees, ensuring that startups have a pool of pre-qualified candidates to consider when hiring. It is also considered a very cost-efficient talent acquisition strategy.

Project Expansion

With extra hands on deck, startups can embark on new projects or scale existing ones that were previously limited by resource constraints. This can lead to the exploration of new markets, products, services or initiatives.

Cultural Diversity

Interns from various academic backgrounds and cultural origins contribute to a diverse work environment. This diversity enriches the startup’s culture, fosters global perspectives, and can even attract a wider customer base.

Increased Flexibility

Startups often operate in dynamic environments where adaptability is crucial. Interns, typically open to learning and change, can seamlessly integrate into these fast-paced settings, helping startups navigate shifts in the business landscape.

Skill Enhancement

Interns often come equipped with the latest academic knowledge and training in emerging technologies. Startups can leverage these skills to implement cutting-edge solutions and stay ahead in their industry.

Brand Visibility

Partnering with academic institutions and hosting interns can enhance a startup’s visibility within the university community. This increased exposure can attract top-tier talent, partnerships, and even potential investors.

Cut Onboarding Time

When startups hire interns, they invest in potential future employees. This means that interns who transition into full-time roles after graduation are already familiar with the culture, processes, and expectations, reducing the onboarding time and costs.

Fresh Insights and Ideas

Interns bring a new perspective to the table, often offering creative solutions and innovative ideas that startups might not have considered. This infusion of fresh insights can lead to breakthroughs and novel approaches to challenges.


We have built a unique global ecosystem

If you’re a startup looking to tap into a pool of talented interns, or an academic institution eager to connect your students with hands-on experience, we invite you to join our academic collaboration initiative. Together, we can nurture the next generation of entrepreneurs, drive innovation, and create lasting impact.

At Linkxar Founders Network, we believe that the intersection of academia and entrepreneurship has the power to shape the future. Join us on this exciting journey of learning, growth, and collaboration.
