Do you want to experience the process of creating a business in a hands-on and rigorous environment?
This internship is for the individual who wants to explore entrepreneurship. The program is built off of a reap-what-you-sow model: at the end of the program, all revenues from the product/service created will be split evenly among the group. As the program will be comprised of 8 individuals, each individual is entitled to ⅛ of the profits.
This is not a traditional internship. The schedule for the course will follow a simulation of a startup. During the first week, we will meet, identify each other's strengths and abilities, and pick a market to serve. During the next weeks, we will research our market, create an initial market solution, beta test the idea, pivot, and launch the product/service. The last weeks will be spent creating a sustainability plan for the business and dividing profits.
For a week by week breakdown, you can view the schedule:
June 5 - 12: Introductions, identifying each other's strengths and abilities, picking market.
June 13 - 19: Researching Market
June 20 - 26: Brainstorming market solutions

This is an opportunity to spend the summer gaining real world business experience through an experimental, innovative, and grassroots program alongside a young team of innovative a curious students.
A bit about me:
I am a current college student. This Fall, I will be starting my senior year. My goals for this summer are to experience what it is like to create a startup alongside other bright minds.
Last summer, I started a summer program for young women ages 15 - 20. I learned a lot from this experience about recruiting students and interns, creating community partnerships, securing institutional grants, and creating a consistent brand presence. Our groups final project was featured in WE Magazine (http://wemagazineforwomen.com/girls-entrepreneurship-program/). This summer, I am interested in exploring for-profit entrepreneurship. I hope you will join me on this journey.
The team is seeking a go-getter with new ideas, problem solving skills, and great written and verbal communication skills. Experience in any of the following areas is appreciated:
- Photography and Video
- Business and entrepreneurship
- Business Financials
- Website Creation and Coding
To apply, please send along your resume and cover letter by May 25th to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note applications will not be reviewed if a cover letter is not included.
