Exciting Fellow Opportunity: Customer Discovery & Product Development
Are you a passionate and driven student looking for a hands-on experience in the world of entrepreneurship? Entrepreneurship begins with understanding specific needs faced by specific individuals. While new developments may technologically superior to incumbent technology or enable new markets altogether, early-stage opportunities are resource constrained and must be efficient in technology development, customer identification, and intellectual property protections in order to make it to the marketplace. Join us and be part of our dynamic team, where you'll have the chance to make a real impact and shape the future of innovative products!
