CEO of Grand Circus Damien Rocchi said, “At the end of the day, this is about introducing students to employers in the room who are looking to hire these student for development.”

Friday afternoon consisted of project pitches and networking. After pitches were complete, employers and guests were able to chat with the students and their projects.


Companies looking for an entry level developers were welcome to join the event. The students were excited to get out into the real world and work at an amazing company.
