Farbstein Internship

The Farbstein Internship in Entrepreneurial Studies at the Roper St. Francis Research and Innovation Center

The RSF Research and Innovation Center works with Israeli start-ups, transform-ing innovative ideas and designs into marketable medical products for the world market. Launched in the Spring of 2016, the Farbstein Internship at the RSF Re-search and Innovation Center provides select students the opportunity to work directly with scientists, inventors, and entrepreneurs connected with Israeli life-science start-ups. Interns learn about international trade, write market plans, and pitch the product or idea of their assigned start-up in a Shark Tank-style presenta-tion.

Applicants must be self-starters and be able to commit 10 hours/week to the in-ternship. All majors (including MBA students) are invited to apply. Three hours of academic credit (if taken for credit) plus a $500 stipend will be awarded to each intern. Per Roper St. Francis policy, interns will be subject to a mandatory Background Check and Substance Test.

Applications for Fall 2018 must be submitted by July 16, 2018. If taken for credit, students must enroll by August 15, 2018. For more information or to apply, contact Mark Swick, swickmn@cofc.edu. Interested students should apply via email, including a copy of your transcript, resume, and statement of interest.
