Summer Rotation: May 15th – August 15th
However, we will accept interns on a rolling basis. The internship lasts 12 weeks.
This is an unpaid internship. Students will not participate in activities that Ideatrek would otherwise hire a paid employee to perform. This is an experiential learning opportunity designed to help students develop collateral, gain experience, and build a support network to help them find a job upon graduation.
Ideatrek is a holding company designed to support early-stage startups with development work, mentorship, and coaching in exchange for equity. The goal of the internship is for students to earn a letter of recommendation from our team. In order to earn that letter, students must write a paper on innovation ethics, specifically focused on three questions: (1) what counts as innovation?; (2) who should be innovating?; (3) how should we value innovations? Students will have the opportunity to attend free lectures and presentations as well as present their work in a seminar format. We also offer various other experiences to provide a broad context in order to write a more interesting paper.
- evaluate early-stage startups and make recommendations to our board
- navigate various platforms associated with the startup ecosystem
- participate in affiliated courses and lectures
- Familiarity with Google Suite of applications including docs, sheets, and forms

Ideatrek IS difference. We celebrate, support, and enjoy diversity for the benefit of those associated with our company. Ideatrek is proud to support an equal opportunity environment.
