Andersen Sponsors Students' High-Tech Start-ups

Arthur Andersen, LLP has agreed to be the lead sponsor of programs supporting student high-tech start-ups.

The firm has partnered with StartEmUp, an organization that helps students bring Internet businesses to fruition.

As a part of the arrangement, Andersen is lending its name to StartEmUp's JumpStart 2K Campus Conferences and contests. Students who win the competitions will have ready access to the firm's entrepreneurial services, including assistance with business plans, market research and prospecting for investors.

Conferences are planned to start in September in Los Angeles, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Atlanta, with plans to expand the geographic scope later this year.
