what does an internship in a startup entail?

Alongside the work you are doing within the startup, you are expected to undertake the following:

Find a CBS Academic Supervisor

The student must find an academic supervisor from CBS and organize meetings with the supervisor during the internship period. To search for a relevant supervisor try EXPERTS@CBS or reach out to a favorite and relevant professor at CBS.

Attend Business Development Sessions

CSE will facilitate business development group sessions. This will be a great place to share insights within the entrepreneurial field, where you are at in your startup and learn from experienced startups and share your knowledge.


The student must maintain an ongoing reflection paper (agenda summary or logbook) that must contain weekly considerations of goals, challenges, action plans and progress. It can be used in the exam report as data to be included in the an appendix.

Students participating in the internship have the opportunity to avail of certain CSE services and offerings:

Possibility for external mentoring

The CSE staff will reach out to the CSE mentor corps network to match the student with an industry mentor if possible.

Office space at CSE

The student can use the CSE facilities together with all other CSE startups e.g. office space, meeting rooms, lawyer and IP rights advice, online community, accounting counseling, kitchen, printing area.
