StartX Advocates Program is your extracurricular of choice if you want to work side-by-side with Stanford's top entrepreneurs! You'll be part of critical initiatives and projects, given an advantage in future Student-in-Residence applications, and given many hands-on opportunities to work closely with Stanford's top founders, mentors, and investors. StartX Advocates build a deep understanding of what it takes to grow successful start-ups and develop extensive networks in the start-up ecosystem.
StartX Advocates also play a key role on the StartX team, and if you demonstrate high performance quality you will be given the reins in a future quarter to direct the entire Student-in-Residence Program, lead StartX's entire Investor Demo Day platform, or spearhead StartX's entire campus strategy for a full year, during your time on the team (depending on the track you select). This program is open to any active Stanford student, ranging from freshmen all the way to 5th year PhDs -- the top performing StartX Advocates each year are also automatically awarded a paid summer internship if you choose to accept it.
Because of the knowledge and training gained by every successful StartX Advocate, students who serve successfully as StartX Advocates earn automatic promotion to the interview stage if they ever choose to apply to StartX or SIR with a team in the future.
