Applications are being accepted through March 2 from Oklahoma college students who want to work this summer for a high growth startup company as an i2E Fellow.
Students from any campus in the state are encouraged to apply for the i2E Fellows program, which provides real world experience over a 10-week period in an entrepreneurial environment.
Fellows will earn $6,000 each for the work experience that begins in early June and conclude in mid-August.
Students will work at an Oklahoma City area company or at i2E, Inc., which manages the program. Fellows are matched with host companies and work on business related projects that match the skill sets they bring to the companies.
Past fellows have worked on marketing projects, conducted market research, sales development, investments and more. Program alumni have gone on to graduate school or accepted full-time positions with entrepreneurial businesses.
“We see the i2E Fellows program as a valuable experience for both the Fellows and the host companies,” said Tom Walker, i2E President and CEO. “The students benefit from working in an entrepreneurial setting while the companies gain valuable team members who bring skills that help the businesses advance in meaningful ways.”
The fourth-year program is open to advanced undergraduate and graduate students from all Oklahoma colleges and universities. Fifteen students from six campuses – the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Oklahoma City University, University of Tulsa, East Central University and OSU-OKC – have served i2E Fellows over the past three years.
Applications for the Fellowships are available online at i2EFellows.com. For more information, contact Casey Harness, program director, at (405) 813-2425 or by email at charness@i2E.org.
With offices in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, i2E is a not-for-profit corporation focused on developing high-growth companies in Oklahoma and making a positive impact on the state's economy through business advisory, access to capital and entrepreneurial development services.
