Intern with us

Interns will be part of IgniteU's staff, supporting the summer accelerator program. They will assist with all necessary tasks to launch and run the accelerator program and related activities. We are looking for a commitment of up to 40 hours/week during the 8 weeksummer program.

Interns will be on site daily at IgniteU and will directly support at least one startup team 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.

The ideal candidate should have a passion for entrepreneurship and be prepared to work independently.  Learning how a startup 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.
