LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR GLOBAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP PROGRAM
Sage Corps is building a community of globally-trained young professionals. Our pre-vetted student interns complete a rigorous application process and are accepted to the program if they have the potential to add value to an early stage startup. Their areas of study include technical majors and engineering, business, and liberal arts/humanities. What they have in common is their drive, eagerness to learn, and excitement about building a global network. During the program, they intern with early stage startups and attend weekly professional events to build their skills and develop an understanding of the local startup ecosystem.
Registration for host companies is now open. There is no cost to participate, although we do ask that you pay the intern(s) a small stipend to cover some of their local costs. We'd love to hear from you if you're team is based in Amsterdam, Austin, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Chicago, Denver, Dublin, Hong Kong, Melbourne, Mexico City, Paris, San Jose (Costa Rica), Santiago (Chile), Shenzhen, Singapore, or Sydney.
Requirements for startups to participate:
1) Provide a meaningful learning opportunity for our students to make impactful contributions to your company during regular business hours (approx. 9AM-5PM). Students attend weekly professional events outside of their responsibilities at work, so schedules of more than 45 hours per week are not ideal.
2) Welcome the student as a core team member; give access to co-founders/executives at the company and include the student in team meetings and social gatherings.
3) Provide a stipend to help students cover local expenses. Our Fellows incur significant costs in traveling/living to a new city (often on a new continent). It becomes more difficult to recruit top students and ask them to spend thousands of USD to travel/live and receive no compensation. Higher stipends allow us to recruit students purely based on merit, without regard for their financial situation. That said, we would still work to connect you with a student if you cannot provide any stipend.
4) Offer opportunities for the student to experience the startup community (professionally and socially) -- events, conferences, meetings, etc.
