The Whether gives you access to immediate advice about your career and allows you to discover relevant information and opportunities from the ventures in the Skandalaris program. Here what you can expect:

  2. As you engage with ventures that catch your interest, ventures will engage with you!
  3. Your interactions and how early you start will count towards your acceptance into the program.

Skandalaris Summer Programming is a valuable component for the students. Students work at their startups throughout the week, and throughout the summer, the Center coordinates practical, hands-on learning opportunities for students, while introducing them to the larger St. Louis community and the thriving support system for entrepreneurs.

Our goal is for students to experience entrepreneurship from a variety of perspectives. Through off-campus experiences, interns will hear from speakers who are leaders in their industry, including experienced entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and campus partners and go on site visits to entrepreneurial organizations and neighborhoods. This includes visiting the city’s interesting and diverse, though sometimes economically challenging, neighborhoods. Locations may include co-working spaces, incubators, taking a tour, or spending time with a local entrepreneur working to address the challenges and promote the opportunities in the neighborhood. Interns are expected to fully engage in their internship and all programmed activities.
