About the Internship
Students from the GGFBM who are looking for experience working with real-world startups have the opportunity to be paired with a local startup and apply their skills. Interns will be given the tools needed to understand the business aspects of launching a new venture to support startups in the process.
The internship lasts one semester and is tailored to meet each startup-intern pair's individual needs. Students should expect to dedicate 5-10 hours per week on tasks ranging from writing a business plan, to conducting market research, to performing a competitive analysis, and more.
Get notified by March 26 if you've been selected by a startup.
Meet your startup the first week of April and set the expectations for the rest of the semester.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
It was truly a unique, hands on experience. I worked directly with the founder of the start-up. Was exposed to the entire process, from business plan to promoting the idea in a specialty fair. The experience really gave me a clear grasp of the entrepreneurial spirit of the region, the challenges and the various ways one can get funding and have one’s idea come to life. If considering to jump the start-up wagon, doing this internship should be a MUST.
My internship with a startup through the Bengis program was a unique opportunity to experience Israel’s special startup culture up close. It afforded me a real-world example of how startups go from an idea to a reality, and how difficult, long, and winding that path can be. The networking and learning opportunities through Bengis’ mentors and programs enabled me to meet entrepreneurs, industry experts, and investors I never would have met otherwise.
