An internship at a big corporate company can give you a glimpse of the fast life but you will miss out on learning how the company became that huge in the first place. It is by working in startups that you will get to see how a small setup can turn into something big.
Internshala, the popular internships and training platform, has launched an initiative titled 'India's Best Startup Internships' to help startups build their teams and students land exciting startup internships.
Q. What is the purpose of the 'India's Best Startup Internships' initiative?
As per CB Insight, 23% of startups fail because of the wrong team. Through India's Best Startup Internships (IBSI), the platform aims to highlight the role internships can play in building a great team for startups.
Startups face a variety of problems while scaling up their businesses but one of the major problems which hamper their growth is the lack of a strong team. Building exciting internship opportunities for students is a feasible solution for the startups to counter this.
3 reasons why matching startups with the right interns can help everyone
- Interns bring 'out-of-the-box' ideas and a new perspective to the table
- The hiring costs are considerably reduced when startups hire interns
- On the other hand, for students, startup internships can be a great 'first-step' for their career as the amount of learning they acquire and responsibilities they shoulder in a small-sized business is immense.
Companies which are part of the startup internship initiative :
Organisations like AICTE, AWS Activate, TiE chapters, Kerala Startup Mission, Startup Oasis, and IIMB-NSR Cell are working to help startups scale up in India and have spread the word about IBSI among the startup community.
From a pool of 400 startup entries received for IBSI campaign, Internshala has selected the top 10 exciting startup internships. The selected startups include Myraa Technologies, ACSIA, Inc42 Media, SoCheers Infotech, Rockmetric, GST Edge, Shipsy, WoodFlake, ZoloStays, and Enfrosun Power. The popular startup media platforms, YourStory and TechStory, are the media outreach partners for the initiative.
The students will get a chance to apply to varied profiles including Smart Metering, Machine Learning, Entrepreneurship, AI Solution Engineering, and Autonomous Driving Software Development.
On the launch of the campaign, Sarvesh Agrawal, the founder and CEO of Internshala, said,
"The innovative work which is happening in the Indian startup community is impressive. This is also a great opportunity for students to explore a career with startups where they can handle responsibilities, head projects, build great products, and learn hands-down practical skills early on"
