K to the Bay

K to the Bay: Entrepreneurship and High Tech, San Francisco Bay Area

December 4-7, 2018

Open to juniors and seniors in all majors

Attend K to the Bay Info Session on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 during Common Time in Dewing 200 for more information about this program and the application process.

Kalamazoo College is offering a four-day “career trek” for a small group of highly motivated students to travel to Silicon Valley and the Bay Area for a structured set of highly interactive onsite visits with founders, CEOs, CTOs, venture capitalists, and lawyers of major companies.  These sessions will give students insight into what these companies do and how they do it. This opportunity for high-level exposure to entrepreneurs and other executives in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area can illustrate how new ventures materialize, impact how students envision their own professional plans, and potentially jumpstart students’ professional networks.

The program will arrange and pay for round-trip flights to San Francisco, lodging and on-the-ground transportation in California, and dinners.  Students will cover their own breakfasts, lunches, and other costs, such as airport parking. Contact Valerie Miller before the application deadline if this poses undue financial hardship.

This program is made possible by the generosity and initiative of Brad O’Neill ’93 who lives in the Bay Area and is founding CEO of multiple Silicon Valley companies.

Participants must attend a series of preparatory meetings in October and November.

Apply for K to the Bay Participant “job” via Handshake – Applications open: September 17, 2018 at 8 am.

Application deadline: Friday, October 5, 2018 by 10 am.
