We seek interns who are above all else entrepreneurial. Entrepreneurial means that you have a bias towards action, you want to make an impact in the world, you don’t want to spend your life working for other people, and you are willing to fail if it means you fail in pursuit of your curiosity and your freedom.

This internship will be a deep dive into the dynamics of:

  • Search Fund Entrepreneurship (i.e. entrepreneurship through acquisition)
  • Healthcare – how to keep seniors safe and well, especially in a post-COVID world

Remote – White Paper Project

From Duke Alum Les Ottolenghi: Several of the F-500 companies we are consulting with have limited resources to develop Whitepapers for:

1.) the New IT operating models,
2.) new cybersecurity operating models and
3.) Digital Business Transformation Roadmaps including high-level business models?
Would there be an interest from students to develop – per our guidance – and author white papers (max 15-20pp) and an operating model (high level DCF estimates for new business lines) with a roadmap (again 15-20pp). We also have a request for a future of journalism whitepaper — “what does journalism with truth and trust look like in the 21st century — workable models, and a way to re-invent local journalism”

My estimate is 3-4 students to do all three projects or possibly a 5 with a good writer/editor.

Please email if you are interested!
