Build Something Kickass
This Summer

The Summer Associate Program is designed to give students a taste for entrepreneurship and continue to develop their skills, network and opportunities in business and technology. Through our partners and collaborative online community, we connect students to resources, education and experiences that solve big problems.

Talent First

Due to the COVID-19 situation that we currently find our world in, we decided that it was critical to offer students the opportunity to be a part of creating new 'Future Forward' companies. The program is designed to seed, start and scale through a 'Founders First Incubator' model, allowing successful applicants to solve big ideas with the help of mentors, guides and industry leaders.
