Introduction

If you’re a startup founder, you will take on multiple roles at the same time. This is especially true if you are a sole founder or if you are at a very early stage. This can be a problem if you are a non-technical founder and you are focused on building a technology company. This post outlines the resources that you have on Purdue’s campus for acquiring technical help in software development, design, and engineering.

Software Development

If you want to build a website, mobile application, or any other coding related product, reach out to any of these clubs below.

Engineering

If you want to build a physical machine or prototype, reach out to any of these clubs below.

Design

If you are looking for designers for software or industrial applications, reach out to any of these clubs below.

Other Resources

For any other forms of technical help or advice, first reach out to Burton D. Morgan or Purdue Foundry to point you in the right direction. I have also listed a few industry agnostic consulting organizations that might be of help to you. Finally, if you are looking for a student organization in a more niche industry, search for them on BoilerLink and reach out to their club sponsor so that the professor can point you to the best students.
