where do you come in?

UIF hires high school and college students to work in the Entrepreneur Mentoring Program (EMP). EMP Business Analysts work on projects and conduct research to support participants within the Entrepreneur Mentoring Program. These college and university students gain valuable “real world” experience by working with entrepreneurs and the UIF staff to push business, service or product ideas forward!

what is it like to intern with emp?

analysts work on multiple projects that differ based on the needs of the participants and the skills of the student.

"I was interacting with entrepreneurs, giving my opinion at meetings, and working to develop and implement strategies that met the needs of the program's participants."

- George Zindel, IV La Salle University

additionally, analysts have the opportunity to manage and mentor high school students whom work within the entrepreneur mentoring program.

"... working within the amazing environment and culture at UIF, where everyone is willing to teach, learn, and share advice, I have grown my skills, both socially and professionally."

- Sravya Basvapatri, Westchester East High School
