Startup MiamiOH

Building Talent Pipelines for Startups

StartupMiamiOH connects startup companies with high quality student talent in some of the country’s fastest growing entrepreneurial ecosystems. Companies benefit from the structure, guidance, and support that the faculty-led cohort model provides. Students benefit from the hands-on work experiences and exposure to the inner-workings of entrepreneurial organizations.

StartupMiamiOH is not your traditional internship or co-op program; it’s an immersive experience that provides coaching and training for students while ensuring a seamless, maintenance-light process for companies. Miami’s world-class Entrepreneurship and Interactive Media Studies programs work with students from dozens of majors in an intensive pre-program workshop to ensure they walk in the door ready to add immediate value. In-person classes and coaching sessions continue (outside of work) throughout the program. Programs run during the fall, spring and summer semesters.
