This is no ordinary internship.
 It’s an extraordinary opportunity to explore, engage, learn, and lead. To gain high-level work experience while immersing yourself in a new culture, exploring new markets and making a social impact.
Seed is an exciting Stanford GSB-led initiative working to end the cycle of global poverty. We partner with entrepreneurs in emerging markets to build thriving enterprises that transform lives. As a Seed intern, you can work alongside talented entrepreneurs and contribute directly to a company’s future, its growth and job creation.

HOW: The application is now live!
