NC IDEA 2021 Summer Graduate Fellowship
NC IDEA is seeking talented students
with a demonstrated interest in startups and entrepreneurship for a fellowship opportunity. While the fellowship is targeted at 1st year
MBA candidates, students in other programs with corresponding interest are also
encouraged to apply.
The fellowship requires a full-time, 40
hour/week commitment for 10 weeks over the summer (June-August). Selected
candidates will be compensated at a rate of $750 a week.
This program is ideal for students interested in 1) having an investment
career with an angel/venture capital firm or 2) entrepreneurs and
entrepreneurially minded students looking to enhance their knowledge of the
startup landscape in North Carolina and/or gain a better understanding of how
young ventures are evaluated by investors.
Fellows will receive the opportunity to
work directly with emerging startups who have received NC IDEA’s SEED and
MICRO grants or participated in NC IDEA LABS. This experience will allow fellows to dedicate their summer to a
diverse range of projects including, but not limited to:
Marketing Validation and Planning Exercises
Market and Industry Research
Each student will also receive an opportunity
to spend a portion of the summer working on projects that directly benefit the
mission of NC IDEA.
Additional benefits of the program
Resumes will be accepted until positions are filled.
