Sure, it’s cold right now, but it’s time to start thinking ahead to summer if you want a chance to participate in Startup Summer 2013. A Startup Colorado program, Startup Summer is a great way for aspiring entrepreneurs to gain some real life experience and get plugged into the Boulder-Denver startup community.
Startup Summer combines a ten-week paid internship with educational seminars, social events and mentorship opportunities. There are a variety of internships available with different types of companies, so while an academic focus in business, engineering, or computer science is preferred, it’s not required. The program is open to any student actively enrolled in a four-year university. Applicants should be self-motivated, dedicated, and passionate about entrepreneurship and innovation.
March 1 is the final deadline for stage one of the application process, so it’s time to start putting together that resume and cover letter. Visit http://startupcolorado.com/startup-summer for more details about Startup Summer and to apply.
