Harvey Mudd College students gain invaluable experience working in startup companies through the new Entrepreneurial Summer Fellowship program. This program is designed to match students with companies that are a good fit for their skills and interests, in order to give them a taste of the startup space.
The feedback from both students and companies has been overwhelmingly positive, with many noting the numerous benefits of the program. Kash Gokli, inaugural director of entrepreneurship initiatives and Oliver C. Field Professor of Manufacturing Practice and Engineering Economics, is hopeful that the program will continue to grow in the coming years.
The student fellowships are part of a larger push by Harvey Mudd College to become more entrepreneurial. In addition to the summer program, the school offers an entrepreneurship minor, a startup incubator space on campus and a number of other resources for students interested in starting their own businesses.
