UC Digital Spark
A special opportunity for students to use their skills in an effort to support local businesses develop an online presence in the Collegeville area.
The U-Imagine Center for Integrative and Entrepreneurial studies is pleased to announce that Ursinus College has been granted another round of funding to provide support to 10 local small businesses this summer through its Digital Spark program, free of charge.
Digital Spark partners college students with small businesses or startups for 8 weeks in the summer to provide digital media services. This year we are hoping to provide hybrid services, with students working 2 days remotely and 2 days on-site, should circumstances permit. This program has provided support to 72 businesses in our community over the last 5 years. Students are paid a stipend from the college and work with their business client on a project that can reasonably be completed in 8 weeks. Areas of need that could be supported include, but are not limited to:
Digital Marketing promotions for a launch of a new product initiative or start-up
Development or enhancement of Social Media/Digital Marketing presence
Competitive Analysis/Market Research
Data Collection and Organization
