UTCS, UT CNS and the startup community joined together to pilot the first "Startup Village" at the Career Fair. This initial opportunity provided a platform for startup companies to build their brand and provide information about employment opportunities to students. Startup Village, a specially reserved and themed section of the larger Career Fair, enjoyed heavy student traffic as students stopped to talk about entrepreneurial opportunities with a number of companies ranging from gaming to a social media site for families to mobile computing and media to software development.
