SX is the place to take any idea that you're excited about, learn how to bring it to life, and turn it into the next groundbreaking solution — alongside hundreds of students around the country and with the help of our regional partners.
Join the community by completing the four steps below.
01 — Join our Discord + share what you're building/want to build.
Tap into the conversations on what students in your region are building, share your feedback on others' ideas, and learn how to iterate by connecting with mentors.
Introduce yourself in #intros, and start connecting!
02 — Find a Ship-It Sunday & other events in your area.
Each Sunday, students join us either virtually or IRL at Ship-It to share focused time dedicated to working on their latest idea, and to demo their progress to the community. After each month, students gather at Founders' Fridays to demo their latest build, and to hear input from investors.
In addition, check out our hackathons, pitch competitions, and networking events, courtesy of our regional partners.
03 — (optional) Check out your local builder communities, regardless of what you're interested in.
04 — Come build with us for the semester, either from zero or from proven traction.
We offer three ways for you to build with us in Atlanta. Join Genesis if you're new to building, or if you're building your latest idea from scratch. Join Fellowship if your idea has received evidence-based validation from customer discovery. Come to ShipIt events if you'd like to meet other builders, to share what you're working on, or if you'd like to gain feedback from mentors.
Connect with our community of student builders, and gain the proper accountability, support, and diverse feedback that you need to elevate your ideas to the next level.
Let's build. Together.
At the end of the semester, everyone is invited to attend a two-day summit, where the best ideas are pitched for prizes, and students connect and explore further startup opportunities.
We've also had speakers, such as the SVP of PrizePicks, and the founder of OneTrust, the fastest-growing company on Inc. 500.
