In this month’s Technical.ly Podcast, our team dives into the issue of how to retain college talent after graduation.
“You relocate elsewhere, whether it be New York City or Washington D.C.,” Zuvich said. “[Delaware] definitely seems more temporary for a lot of out-of-state students.”
Still, Zuvich, a Newark native, says her peers — at least the ones from Delaware — see the First State as a place to move back to a start a family, once you’ve lived and worked in a city for a few years and are ready to settle down.
And even though Delaware is situated relatively close to four large cities, Zuvich said she wishes her home state were better connected. Her friends that have interned in Philadelphia and Baltimore have been constrained by limited train times, she said.
Zuvich also discussed several initiatives UD is pursuing to specifically cultivate entrepreneurs. She cites Hen Hatch, a campus-wide startup funding competition, as being a boon to fostering entrepreneurship at the university.
“I have confidence in my generation,” Zuvich said. “The entrepreneurial spirit is very much alive.”
