What is Gig-Hub?

An exchange where Davidson students and startups/companies
can connect on short-term real-world projects for pay: you know, a gig!

If you are a non-profit or public-sector organization seeking to collaborate with Davidson on
projects, you are eligible for pro bono assistance through our Center for Civic Engagement.
To learn more about their offerings and services, contact the CCE, or submit your project request here.

How does Gig-Hub work?

Startups and companies submit short-term projects to Gig-Hub, perhaps an immediate need for data analysis, market research or copywriting, among other skills. 

Davidson students can apply at any time during the year to be a part of the Gig-Hub team, and join any of our eight skill pools.

Through The Hurt Hub, we match students with the right interests, availability and skill sets to companies with specific needs.

 From there, you work together to get the job done!
