What is Link?

We are community of likeminded students and young professionals who comet together on in-person Startup Ecosystem Tours to visit leading Startups, VCs, and Corporations.

About the Link Visit-Community:
- 50 / 50 Gender Ratio 👸🤴
- 50 / 50 Tech to Business 💻🔬
- 35+ Nationalities 🌍
- 35+ Universities 🏫

Who are we?

Our community consist of top-tier entrepreneurial talent from diverse academic backgrounds, with an equal gender ratio and tech to business ratio. We are united in our passion for the startup ecosystem and believe in the power of diversity to open new doors and challenge the status quo.

Max Brenner and John Schanbacher founded Link after prior co-organizing multiple Ecosystem Trips.

From a young age, we have been hooked by the startup ecosystem. Our backgrounds include experience in building companies and working for VCs and startups such as Palo Alto based Honeystone Ventures, Mountain View based Upland, as well as working in corporate settings like Tesla.

What do we offer?

Our trips offer the opportunity to get to know other like-minded fellows and industry leaders in a casual and personal setting. You will grow your professional network and get excise to exclusive job opportunities. But you might also find your Co-Founders and, most importantly, new friendships.

How to apply for a trip?

Who are we looking for?

We seek ambitious individuals who are not afraid to challenge the status quo.

We encourage you to apply, if you have a track record of working on your own projects, have startup or venture capital experience, or have thrived in fast-paced environments.

We believe that these experiences have prepared you to be a valuable member of our community.
