DURHAM – Know a student entrepreneur looking for a Summer 2020 Internship?

Although we have yet to close out 2019, students are already in search of opportunities for their upcoming summer breaks.

NC IDEA’s historical focus has been high-tech, venture backable startups, which meant we worked mostly with companies based in the Research Triangle Park. In 2018, we committed to broaden our reach and intentionally grow our support of under-represented, under-served and under-resourced entrepreneurs, particularly those in economically distressed counties in North Carolina.

In furtherance of this commitment, NC IDEA is offering a Summer 2020 Internship for under-represented students with the goal of helping to create a more diverse group of future entrepreneurs.

About the Internship

During this paid internship, students will learn about startups and the organizations across North Carolina that support startups. The specific, assigned projects will depend on NC IDEA’s needs, as well as the student’s skills and background. We are looking for undergraduate or graduate students with a keen interest in startups and entrepreneurship. Students must identify as a female, person of color, or reside in a hometown in a Tier 1 or Tier 2 economically distressed county of North Carolina.

The application deadline is Friday, January 17, 2020.
