The College Hub

Come co-create with The @ Company. Let’s build an Internet where People, not Big Tech, call the shots.

If you’re a college student who wants to make a difference, there are several ways you can get involved:

“I’ve grown tremendously during my time at The @ Company. The people are funny, humble, hardworking, and listen sincerely to what I have to say (even when I was an intern). Now that I work full-time in content strategy, I’m regularly entrusted with high-level work that most fresh out of college wouldn’t be given the opportunity to do until much later in their careers — and I’ve learned so much.”

“Working at the @ Company has been a big change in my life. I can’t believe I’m now heading up social media to usher in the new alternative Internet on the @protocol. My internship with the @ Company was one of the most incredibly valuable experiences of my career.”

The Alternative Internet Summer Lab 2021

In this year’s Summer Lab, college students designed and built their own apps on the @protocol, creating solutions that have not been possible on the Internet until now.

Some of the apps that our student teams got to MVP (minimum viable product) status this summer include:

@spacesignal
Drawing its inspiration from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved tale The Little Prince, @spacesignal inspires people to engage in meaningful online conversations. See the @spacesignal demo

@family
@family is an all-in-one family productivity toolbox providing private family to family messaging for chores and activities. See the @family demo

@vento
An event planning app by and for university students. Built on the @platform, @vento makes events easier and more secure. See the @vento demo

@find
A safety and privacy first app where you can share and receive friend and family locations whilst on the move. See the @find demo

If you are interested in 2022’s Summer Lab, please contact: denise@atsign.com
