Through its extensive network of incubators, accelerators, venture capital and angel investors, entrepreneurs, and foreign governments, Sage Corps ensures that its Fellows work with carefully selected startups. Typically, these companies have a strong English-speaking team who will lead the startups into a high-growth phase. Sage Corps works with hundreds of startups around the globe, across multiple industries including:
Working with a startup, you get unique opportunities to make a contribution to a company and see the tangible results. As a Sage Corps Fellow, you get access to CEOs and management, in order to collaborate and impact a company. This is a really unique experience that is coupled with weekly programming that our team facilitates for students. This helps to develop networking skills, professional development, and cultural immersion throughout the placement city.
Startups find us through a number of ways - outreach through our network of startup hubs, word of mouth, previous partnerships, etc. We look for companies that are going to provide substantive work for our Fellows, mentorship throughout the term, and exciting startups that are in the seed or early stages.
We are entrepreneurs ourselves and know that it doesn't just take one specific skill to build a business. We know that everyone must wear multiple hats, constantly generate results and be able to move quickly. We screen our applicants with this experience in mind and only accept extraordinary talent (typically 5-10% of total applicants) that will thrive in a startup environment.
As a highly selective program, we send our students to work with the most exciting startups in the world. Click here to view some brief information about the Sage Corps Program and a couple of testimonials from other startups.
