Waterloo students are invited to apply to the inaugural FirstMark Elite, a competitive program that matches outstanding computer science and engineering students (undergraduates and graduates) with paid summer internships at leading NYC startups.
The program provides exposure to the rapidly growing tech ecosystem and the opportunity to meet with some of the best entrepreneurs, founders, and technologists in the country.
Students also benefit from a summer curriculum consisting of networking and mentoring events like “Tech Talks” with founders and social events like baseball or soccer games.
Participating startups include Aereo, Knewton, NewsCred, Dashlane, and more.
We are now accepting applications on a rolling basis. The final deadline is February 7th but we strongly encourage students to apply early.
A group of up to 45 Semi-Finalists will be invited to NYC on Saturday, March 1st to interview with participating startups.
From those 45 Semi-Finalists roughly 15 will be offered paid internships.
