Loeb.NYC Entrepreneurial Internship Information Session

November 14, 2019 - 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm (already occurred)

Startup studio Loeb.NYC is continuing its commitment to entrepreneurial internships in NYC. Michael Loeb ’77, P’21 (serial entrepreneur, founder of Loeb Enterprises/Loeb.NYC, and co-founder of Priceline), along with Nicole Williams (founder of portfolio company ‘WORKS’, three-time bestselling author and regular talk show guest), have collaborated to bring you the Loeb.NYC Summer Internship Program for the fourth year in a row.
Loeb.NYC’s 10-week internship program provides training and first-hand NYC startup experience to approximately 40 bright undergraduate students with an enthusiasm for business and innovation. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to learn about entrepreneurship and make a difference at a startup. Attend this information session to learn more about the internship program and how to successfully apply to be part of the Summer 2020 cohort!
The internship kicks off in early June, when interns join Michael and Nicole at Michael’s Southampton house (if you’ve seen Billions on Showtime, it’s that Hampton house), where they are immersed in a one-day training program. The next day, the CEOs of the startup companies selected for the summer program pitch their businesses and summer projects to the interns. After individual meetings between the startups and the students, each intern is matched with a company that closely fits their skills and interests. To ensure this program is a success for interns and companies, company CEOs create defined assignments with meaningful work and oversight.
The internship program is supportive and comprehensive. Each intern receives a subject matter introduction to business and entrepreneurship, obtains support throughout the ten weeks, and is provided with resources enabling them to succeed. Every week, interns visit the Loeb.NYC home office for our version of an evening ‘Ted Talk’ featuring world class entrepreneurs discussing, well, just about anything they want to. In addition, interns participate in a weekly roundtable where progress is reviewed and concerns discussed.
Students who are selected for this internship will receive a stipend from the college to facilitate their participation.
*This internship is a part of the Charles Hamilton Houston Internship Program. Students must enroll in the Houston Program first before applying. Visit the Loeb Center website to learn more about applying to the Houston Program or send an email to internships@amherst.edu.
