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, flexibility, motivation, and passion for innovation.
The program has students intern for most of the week and then participate in special programming at different times, which includes site visits, workshops, networking, collaboration opportunities and speakers.
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 prepared to be flexible.
In order to support discovery of ventures and their opportunities, the Skandalaris Center has partnered with Better Weekdays to facilitate connections between students and venture hosts. The platform will help make the selection process easier by providing potential hosts a place to discover and attract internship candidates to their opportunities. Students will have the chance to express interest in ventures after discovering more about each venture and the projects they could be working on.
