Chapel Hill, NC – Miracle Feet – Full-time Position

About Us
MiracleFeet is a global nonprofit working to eliminate a leading cause of physical disability worldwide. Over two million children live with the severe consequences of a treatable birth defect known as clubfoot, and 175,000 more babies are born with it every year. Thanks to a non-surgical solution called the Ponseti method, 95 percent of cases can be fully treated for less than $500. Since 2010, MiracleFeet has scaled this proven, low-cost treatment to 27 countries where children previously had limited or no access to care.

RTP, NC – NC IDEA – Paid Internship

NC IDEA INTERNSHIP PROGRAM FOR UNDER-REPRESENTED ENTREPRENEURS – SUMMER 2020

ABOUT NC IDEA

NC IDEA is a not-for-profit foundation whose mission is to empower North Carolinians to reach their full entrepreneurial potential. We accomplish this mission through grants and mentorship programs for startup founders, and through grants to organizations around the state who help entrepreneurs. Learn more at www.ncidea.org.

Our historical focus has been high-tech, venture backable startups, which meant we worked mostly with companies based in the Research Triangle Park. In 2018, we committed to broaden our reach and intentionally grow our support of under-represented, under-served, and under-resourced entrepreneurs, particularly those in economically distressed counties in North Carolina. One way we want to do this is to provide internship opportunities for under-represented students with the goal of helping to create a more diverse group of future entrepreneurs.


ABOUT THE INTERNSHIP
This paid internship will provide a fantastic experience with an organization at the center of North Carolina’s startup ecosystem. You will learn about startups and the organizations across North Carolina that support startups. The specific projects that you will work on will depend on our needs in the summer and your skills and background.

Past NC IDEA interns have worked on:
• Projects that support the work of NC IDEA:
o Researching, updating and analyzing data about the North Carolina entrepreneurial ecosystem and startups around the state
o Improving and updating our website and social media content, including case studies on the companies that receive our grants
o Assisting in the execution of our programs and seminars
• Projects that support one or more of our grantee companies such as:
o Market research or competitive analysis
o Web and social media content
o Other research activities


Key characteristics that we seek are:
• First and foremost, we are looking for undergraduate or graduate students with a keen interest in startups and entrepreneurship, no matter what your major, as demonstrated by having taken an introduction to entrepreneurship class, started a business, worked at a startup, or some other specific way
• Skill or interest in one of the many areas that could be useful to NC IDEA or one of our startups
• A desire, following graduation, to become involved in a startup company or organization supporting startups in North Carolina.
• You must identify as a female, person of color, or reside in a hometown in a Tier 1 or Tier 2 economically distressed county of North Carolina. (https://www.nccommerce.com/grants-incentives/county-distress-rankings-tiers). Representing more than one of these criteria is a plus.

DETAILS

The position is 40 hours per week and requires a commitment of 10 weeks during the summer. Exact dates are flexible to meet the student’s schedule. The salary is $15/hour. If applicable, interns may also receive class credit for this work and are responsible for making those arrangements with their instructor(s).


HOW TO APPLY

Submit a cover letter and resume that are specifically tailored for this opportunity, along with an unofficial transcript at our application site: https://www.tfaforms.com/4776205
The application deadline is Friday, January 17. Interviews will take place in late January and early February with selection by the end of February.

Durham – Lojika – Student Ambassador

I graduated from the Fuqua School of Business in 2010, upon graduation worked in New York in Investment Banking afterwards and relocated back to Istanbul. I am now working as a CFO for Lojika Field Labs.
Lojika is a tech start-up founded by ex-Merill Lynch and Deutsche Bank guys. We have developed a unique algorithm that focuses on mobility and ridesharing. The main purpose of the platform is to improve carpooling in a fun and efficient way, and fill up the empty seats in private cars. The drivers use it for cost reimbursement, not for remuneration like Uber.
We have received the highest European high-tech grant in Turkey from the European Commission and our private investors include CEOs of Deutsche Bank Turkey, Credit Suisse Turkey, and BNP Paribas Turkey.
We have tested and proved our product in big metropols such as Istanbul, Madrid, and Tel Aviv over 20,000 test rides and now we want to expand into the US market. As a Duke Alum, I considered Durham to be a good place because of lack of good public transport options and Duke University being the main journey point in most trips.
We need to recruit a student ambassador that have a passion for start-ups to work on our behalf to test our product. We will be paying USD 10-13 per hour depending on the candidate. We could also pay a success fee if the ambassador manages to generate a certain number of trips. At this stage, we do not expect to generate income from the trips.
