Welcome to Startup Exchange.

Welcome to Startup Exchange.

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.
