Intern with us

The intern will be part of IgniteU's staff supporting the summer accelerator program. The intern will assist with all necessary tasks to launch and run the accelerator program and related activities.  We are looking for a commitment of 30-40 hours/week during the summer.

Interns will be on site daily at IgniteU and therefore be assigned to at least one startup team to work with during the program. Tasks are varied depending on where the startup is in their development phase, the capabilities of the startup team, and individual needs.

This intern should be prepared to work independently, and will finish the internship having gained experience in the entrepreneurship ecosystem in New York State.  Learning how a start-up company is run from the inside out will give an aspiring entrepreneur unique experience that will help them carry out their own big business idea when the time comes.  This is an excellent opportunity to develop your network and learn from the region’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
