In the framework of the Summer Internship Program, undergraduate and graduate students have participated in Tennessee’s startup community via paid summer internships. Interns work at one of the funding source's statewide partner entrepreneur centers, high-growth startups, or venture firms across Tennessee.
Tennessee-based startups, venture capital firms, and entrepreneur centers are invited to apply to host a summer intern. LaunchTN will facilitate intern recruitment, and onboarding support, and may share costs for the student stipend. For selected interns, they offer networking and professional development opportunities throughout the summer.
The program offers three different tracks - Startup, Ecosystem Builder, and Venture Capital - to provide interns with hands-on experience in their chosen field.
