Lassonde Silicon Valley Tech Tour

Get Inspired

Silicon Valley is a major global technology and start-up hub. Lassonde would like to build its reputation in this major market and expose our co-op students to employers and the culture of the valley. The Lassonde Co-op/Internship Program is exploring student interest in participating in a tour designed to offer a first-hand experience of the Silicon Valley technology culture. The tour would be an opportunity to network with high-tech companies and startups, and discover new ideas about the future of working in the tech sector. The tour would include networking with high caliber tech companies that students would not be able to access on their own.
