Company Summary

SimpApply is a web-service that connects students with jobs at startups. Our mission at SimpApply is to inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs and we think the best way to do that is to give students a real startup experience.
We created SimpApply as three undergraduate engineers at Rice University who were seeking startup internships but could not locate any opportunities though we knew there were tons of exciting startups in Texas
