The Carolina Startup Fellows program helps startups by providing part- or full-time MBA summer interns for below market rates. Subsidies are provided by the Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital (EVC) club. Startup Fellows are recruited and selected on campus. Startups have the benefit of interviewing screened finalist.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org during the spring semester (January-May) to express your interest in hiring a subsidized summer MBA intern for a 10-12 week engagement, usually starting sometime in May and ending in August. The EVC club and the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies will work with you to find an appropriate match, though there are no guarantees.
There will be informational events during the fall semester of your 1st year in graduate school. Applications will be accepted in January. After being accepted into the program, students work with the EVC Club and the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies to identify appropriate startups for the summer internship. Students usually work for one to two different startups during their summer. If two clients, it may be concurrent or subsequent, depending on the needs of the clients.
Funding for the internship comes from the startups, subsidized with funds from the Entrepreneurship and Venture Capital (EVC) Club at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School. Through this partnership, startups are able to obtain the services of MBAs at well below MBA market rates.
