We know grades aren't everything in business and entrepreneurship. That said, we are looking for serious, ambitious students who have taken their coursework seriously.
Strong interest in startups
We look for students who can clearly explain why they are interested in business careers, and in particular working with startup companies.
Mature team player
We pride ourselves in finding excellent interns for our startup partners. We are looking for team players who can mesh quickly with global teams.
