Deadline this week for entrepreneurs internship
Applications for Ignite Bermuda’s Young Adult Entrepreneurial Internship programme close on Friday at 5pm.
The part-time paid internship initiative will run from May 31 until July 21, and offer 20 successful applicants the opportunity to gain real-world experience within some of Bermuda’s top start-ups as they work on personalised independent projects within their host business or organisation.
The organisation said young adult interns would engage with Ignite entrepreneurs through host mentorship, workshops, small group discussions, and more.
Workshop topics include entrepreneurial mindset, customer discovery, marketing, Bermuda economic overview, health and wellness, and access to capital.
Ignite said participants in the 2021 pilot programme felt it was engaging while enabling them to gain a deeper understanding of entrepreneurship, and ultimately solidifying their desire to pursue their passions.
The organisation said the programme was committed to equitably empowering Bermuda's young adults to follow their passion for entrepreneurship.
Academic certifications and previous work experience are not required for admission into the programme. However, applicants must be 18 to 25 years old; Bermudian or have permission to work in Bermuda; able to fully commit to the programme; possess a positive attitude; and self-motivated.
