The Ignite Young Adult Entrepreneurial Internship programme aims to enable local young adults ages 18-25 years old to develop their passions for entrepreneurship through workshops with industry experts and project-based internships within some of Bermuda's top startups, like you!
Successful Host Businesses/Organizations will take on a young adult intern part-time for 6-weeks of the programme to work on a specific project that has been designed by the host entrepreneur. The objective is for the young adult intern to gain first-hand experience alongside an entrepreneur to witness the day-to-day of running your own business/organization while contributing back to the startup.
As a Host Mentor, the project you create for a young adult intern should encourage their personal and professional growth and development while utilising their own unique skillsets. Projects can vary, anywhere from marketing strategies, customer discovery outreach, membership launching, and more depending on where your current needs are. Multiple project submissions are allowed and even encouraged, to enable the best match possible.
