1,000+ Hours of mentorship through Launch LKN, Davidson Alumni engagement & Hurt Hub Office Hours

Our Gig-Hub program has proven to be a cornerstone in connecting talented Davidson students and commercial ventures, especially startups and small businesses, for short-term internships. The Gig-Hub program provides students who want to develop their professional skills with project-based micro-internships, known as gigs, that immediately translate into skills that employers desire.
Amongst many learnings from the past year, we recognize that “work” will never be the same. We thank you for your continued support as we help prepare students, alumni and our community to be leaders in innovation and entrepreneurship to solve the world’s most pressing challenges.
