The Kessler Fellows Program celebrates student engagement with the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the U.S. and abroad through a one-of-a-kind yearlong Fellowship. The program consists of entrepreneurial education, personal exploration, summer startup engagement, and reflective inspiration.
Engaging with Startups
Over the summer each Fellow experiences the culture of a startup or other entrepreneurial environment and completes engineering and business projects crafted for positive impact.
Fellows identify potential partner companies in February - March of the spring semester which match their interests, skills and best fit in the entrepreneurial ecosystem and reach out to invite and secure a summer partnership by mid-April.
