New Students + Tech Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Internship Program

Through the collective action and collaboration of local colleges, community organizations and our area’s leading startup companies and venture capital firms, we invited college students to apply to a new Diversity, Equity & Inclusion focused internship program that will provide underrepresented college students with the opportunity to gain paid work experience within the local startup industry!

Program Goals

The application period closed on December 4, 2020. Selected students will participate in a One-Day Virtual Startup Tour in January 2021, and then interview with companies.

In addition to the internship experience, interns will also receive ongoing support and training, including:

  • Regular check-ins for support
  • Mentorship
  • Ongoing essential skills training for your long-term career growth
Important to Note:

ALL internships will be remote-based and require interns to work in a virtual environment. There will be a total of 14 internships available. Following the One-Day Tour and interviewing process, not all students are guaranteed an internship placement.
