Raise your hand if: you’re a designer looking for work in the startup world, or a company looking for awesome design talent. All of you – please proceed.
This is the second of our 2-part event duathalon all about design and startups. AND it’s the return of our infamous “Speed Dating for Designers” 2012 event – where people actually got jobs. Boom.
We’re connecting the awesome creatives and businesses of Philadelphia again, speed-dating style. Folks from selected companies and each designer will have 7 minutes to meet each other, check out portfolios and see if it might be a good fit. Then everyone switches seats and meets someone new. This is coveted one-on-one time, people.
Both parties will be able to apply for a speed dating seat, and attendees will be chosen based on their commitment to hiring/working and making the most of the experience.
Designers: apply here
Companies: apply here
Must apply by FRIDAY, APRIL 11. We’ll let you know by April 15 if you’ve been selected to participate.
Disclaimer: This event is not THAT kind of speed dating. But if you do meet that special someone, you may do what you wish. But this is professional, people.

Venturelounge is a way to dig into a topic totally interactively.
A facilitator will lead a discussion about a topic – anything related to tech/entrepreneurship/startups. This is not one of those one-sided events where someone talks at you. It’s hands-on, gritty, real. This is where all that class participation practice from college will come in handy. Share your own experiences, ask your questions, and learn a whole lot.
Topic: Bitcoins and the decentralized internet
Here are some of the potential discussion topics – come, and decide where the conversation goes.
- Bitcoin — what it is, how it works, and why it’s interesting
- The decentralized internet
- Blockchain: Where the real innovation is occurring
- “Bitcoin 2.0” – Ethereum, MaidSafe, Bitshares, Mastercoin
- Bitcoin in PHL — A discussion on bitcoin relative to Philadelphia’s economy
- Where do we go from here
Facilitator: Mike Tannenbaum, bitcoin enthusiast

CodeDay is organized by StudentRND. Please contact them with questions directly.
CodeDay is a hackathon where students who are passionate about technology get together and build things together. During the 24-hour event, high school and college students will pitch ideas, form teams, and build cool apps and games.
Unlike other hackathons, CodeDay isn’t focused on showing off to win thousands of dollars in prizes or building a hot startup. Students come to build something they think is awesome and to learn something new in the process. Even if you don’t know how to code, it’s a great opportunity to hang out and learn! The mission is to help transform student aspiration into a reality, and it offers students of all experience levels just that.
