After a successful launch of the Remote Entrepreneurship Project (REP) program, the Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship, Post-Graduate Planning & Experiential Education—including CWRU LaunchNet—and the Weatherhead School of Management’s Graduate Career Management have teamed up to offer a limited number of Case Western Reserve University students the opportunity to work on remote entrepreneurship-related projects this fall for startups, including CWRU-linked companies.
Applications will be screened and students will be appropriately matched based on the submitted project descriptions and student skills, areas of interest and submitted resumes. Potential candidates will interview with a company and will then confirm if they would like to move forward with that company and project.
Students who are matched and accepted into the program will register for practicum (undergraduates only and fee waived), that requires writing three blog posts on LinkedIn reflecting on their experience and completing a final survey to then receive a $500 stipend for completing the program.
Projects will be approximately six to eight weeks in duration and consist of about five to 10 hours per week. All work will be conducted remotely.
Students interested in participating in the REP program should apply through an online form before Thursday, Sept. 17, at 11:59 p.m. Preference will be given to students who have not completed the program before.
While only a limited number of CWRU students can be accepted and this project cannot recreate the value of a full internship, this is an opportunity to build up resumes and get networking experience.
For companies interested in hosting an REP student, apply online. Only one project can be submitted per employer and companies that participated in the summer session are asked to propose projects with a new scope or work with a new student. Extension of summer project matches is not permitted.
