Are you interested in business and technology? Do you ever wonder how start up companies begin building their business? Have you ever been curious what it would be like to work abroad or with an international company? Well we have news for you!

Her Campus American is excited to co-sponsor the Start Up Nation Technology Fair, a technology and innovation trade show and opportunity fair for students to explore international businesses, network with top-notch innovators and of course snag incredible internships and jobs.
