You are here:


Sage Corps is a global entrepreneurship program that recruits top university students to work with seed and growth stage startups. We have a variety of programs that connect host startups with young talent, ranging from team-based consulting projects to full time internships. There is no cost for host startups to participate in our program. We just ask that startups offer students a discretionary stipend to help cover daily expenses such as food and public transportation.

Students become contributing members of your team, with whom you should expect to communicate regularly throughout each week.

Sage Corps helps structure and facilitate these projects to maximize the value and outcome of the experience for both student and startup. 

Since 2013, over 1,200 university students have participated in the program across 15 global cities worldwide, and remotely, to work with hundreds of high-growth startup companies. Our startup partners have graduated top global accelerator programs such Techstars and Startupbootcamp, while others are backed by world-renown venture capital funds.  

Interested startups can register as a host company and specify whether they’re seeking one or more interns to work with their team.

Why host a Sage Corps Intern on your team?

All of us at one time were in a position where we needed those first professional experiences to jumpstart a career. 

Students make REAL contributions to your company.

You’ll play an important part in developing the next generation global workforce and join in the belief that experience is the new classroom.
