An internship with Flashstarts is very unique: it’s fast-paced, unpredictable, and does not consist of getting anyone coffee. Flashstarts interns must be self-motivated and learn on the job, as they do a lot of hands-on, “real world” work for a variety of startup teams. Our interns gain an exceptional amount of work experience in a wide spectrum of business disciplines.
