Student Info

Students: This summer entrepreneurial internship is an intensive introduction into innovation and entrepreneurship in St. Louis. This internship is for you if:

1. You are an undergrad interested in innovation and entrepreneurship

2. You want to know what it’s like to work for an early stage startup or what it takes to start your own company some day

3. You want to explore St. Louis

Application: Applications are now closed for the 2017 summer program. Typically, all undergraduate students returning for at least 1 semester are eligible for this program. It is open to ALL majors. Applications for the 2018 summer program will open at the end of December 2017.

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.
