This paid, 10-week summer program offers undergraduate students in any school pursuing any major the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship in a real-world setting and connect to the community of startups and support organizations in St. Louis.
The Skandalaris summer internship program is an intensive introduction to St. Louis, to the world of startups, entrepreneurship, and innovation. Ideal candidates for the program are students with an entrepreneurial mindset, ability to take initiative, flexibility, motivation, and passion for innovation.
The program has students intern for most of the week and then participate in special programming each Wednesday afternoon, which includes tours of entrepreneurial areas/neighborhoods, networking, and panels. Lunch will be provided at most events.
Skandalaris interns fully engage in their internship and all activities and apply what they learn in their off-campus experiences to their internship and what they learn at their venture to their off-campus experiences. Attendance at all programming is required for all students, so ventures need to be flexible. Ventures will must plan on attending one networking lunch and panel at some point during the summer. Students need to create and publish one blog post, being as creative as they wish (incorporating pictures, video, etc.).
