Tin Alley Beta

Getting access to tech talent can often be a challenge for growing businesses in regional Victoria. Tin Alley Beta (TAB) is a paid internship program dedicated to helping startups, scale-ups and digitally enabled companies to attract tech talent by nurturing new career pathways for university students to potentially become the next Chief Technology Officers.

The TAB program is in its seventh year and has expanded to include students from six universities in the metropolitan Victoria – including La Trobe University. In 2019, Tin Alley Beta will be extended to Bendigo for the first time.

TAB aims to promote tech entrepreneurship as a career for Australian university students. Every year, technically strong Computing Science and Information Technology undergraduate and postgraduate students are awarded paid summer internships, giving them an opportunity to work with some of Victoria’s best start-ups and scale-ups. With participating start-up and student numbers growing year on year, TAB has created close to 80 internship opportunities for university students across 40 start-ups.

Join us for our first regional launch event, and find out more about how you can benefit from this program as a host participant.
