FledgeWing connects students with mentors, early-stage, small and medium-sized
businesses, as well as like-minded peers to facilitate the development and
launch of innovative new ventures. Aside from student and mentor networking, the
site provides a project area for collaboration and interest pages for students
to discuss the latest trends in their favourite industries. The site also offers
corporate subscriptions and hosts an impressive array of competitions, forums
and business articles.
Having already established links with 170 universities worldwide, FledgeWing is
attracting a dedicated and passionate talent pool. Partnerships with
entrepreneurial clubs and institutes serve to expose both communities to a wider
international student audience while a feedback-style rating system ensures
quality control for both student users and mentors.
Corporate accounts enable companies not only to recruit the top entrepreneurial
minds in universities through selective search criteria, but also to interact
dynamically. Firms can post detailed descriptions of pertinent organizational
problems they are facing in the ’case study’ area, gaining
innovative solutions as well as an assessment of a student’s business
acumen. In addition, companies can have dedicated pages to list their internship
opportunities, recruiting events and contact details, as well as host forum
For students, established mentors, or real world professionals, are on hand to
answer their start-up questions and offer business advice while
FledgeWing’s comprehensive intellectual property agreement protects their
’million dollar brainwaves’. Furthermore, the detailed search engine
for finding fellow students makes FledgeWing a unique portal for the nurturing
of young business minds.
Professionals are offered an exclusive opportunity to see pioneering concepts
from bright university thinkers. After speaking with the students, professionals
may be interested in bringing them on as interns, recommending them to human
resources, or even putting forward seed investment. Moreover, professionals are
acting in a socially responsible way by assisting tomorrow’s leaders. Like
students, professionals can contribute to FledgeWing at a pace that fits their
schedule with no costs or advertising.
