February 23, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources

Hello Hoyas!

Are you wondering what the “hot” tech sectors are right now?  This quick read shares 9 trends predicted for 2022 in the startup space. In summary, the author predicts that investors will continue to put their funding into FinTech, BioTech, Crypto, and Cybersecurity, in addition to the up and coming PropTech sector,  which has benefited from pandemic-fueled home-buying and the digitization of office spaces. If you are particularly interested in health and biotech, this article shares trends within this space which include companies focused on gene editing and cell therapy, mental health, and use of AI in cancer treatments. I was surprised to see Climate/CleanTech didn’t make the list for 2022 given extreme weather concerns and Biden’s environmental agenda. In 2021, there was a lot of hope that tech would take on climate change

It is definitely important to consider what  tech is hot, and therefore, what companies will be hiring. And yet, I also hope you consider where your curiosities lie. What kind of data do you want to analyze? What kind of software do you want to build or market?  Don’t forget to find and apply to tech companies that excite you.

All the best,
