Wayfinder is a highly structured incubator, through UCI Beall Applied Innovation, that connects UC-affiliated startups with essential resources needed to launch, grow and succeed. Housed inside the Cove @ UCI, our collaborative team of business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors and technology transfer experts eat, sleep and drink innovation. Using our combined experience, we help fine-tune a strategic process that leads innovation with both commercial promise and the potential to meet real needs, from formation to funding.

As the Humanities and Entrepreneurship Dialogue Intern you will support the Wayfinder Incubator program through the development of educational programming aimed to apply humanistic perspectives to entrepreneurship. You will develop a workshop series to facilitate a dialogue between scholars, activists, and artists and Wayfinder entrepreneurs that encourages self-reflection, examines the kinds of ethical dilemmas entrepreneurs may confront, and explores different social dimensions of managing personnel and customer relationships.

You will have opportunities to work closely with startups and participate in Wayfinder programming like roundtables, workshops, boot camps, and pitch events that will expose you to the skill-sets associated with starting a business and will help you better understand the target audience of the educational program you will develop.
