Join us at Minus 100 during the summer of 2023 for one-of-a-kind, hands-on experience. You will learn how to operate standard and advanced laboratory equipment in a small group setting and close supervision of the laboratory manager. You will perform many tasks such as calibrating machines, running tests, logging data, recommending possible changes to procedure to increase yield/efficiency. You will gain one on one mentoring on entrepreneurship from the owner, learn how to secure funding for your own business, bring a product to market, and navigate complex global competition. Minus 100 can benefit from fresh ideas a student can bring to the table across all aspects of our business. Minus 100 is also happy to teach any other topics the student would like to learn, if it is under our scope.
Requirement: Students are required to check with their college/university career development office to find out if any guidelines, must be followed and/or requirements must be met for the internship (health & safety, academic or other), by the student and/or the small business host.
