Excelerate is a busy place during the summer, with 10 growing companies in the throws of intense programming. We are looking for help from MBA and undergraduate interns for the summer. If you’re excited about entrepreneurship and venture capital, we offer a great environment for learning.
Every day would be different. For example, an intern might work on some market research in the morning, then order pizza for a team lunch, then take notes during a mentor meeting in the afternoon, and help one of the teams test their software near the end of the day. You’d have a wide range of tasks, from the strategic to the mundane. That’s part of startup life, and part of Excelerate. As an intern, you’ll meet our hundreds of mentors and be around as our teams get advice from the best entrepreneurs, VCs, and executives anywhere.
Requirements for Undergrad Interns: Rising senior or recently graduated. Demonstrated interest in startups. Comfortable with uncertainty and self-directed.
Requirements for MBA Interns: Completed your first year or have recently graduated. Able to leverage your knowledge of startups, business models, strategy, finance, and more to help both our companies and the program. Ready to manage one or more interns.
Both must be available in Chicago weekdays May 29th – Aug. 31th.
