Students, as you are gearing up to apply for summer internships, here is an overview of what 1M/1M has in store this year. As you know, our mission is to help one million entrepreneurs build $1 million each in annual revenue. We will be awarding 1M/1M scholarships to those interns who complete 100 hours of successful projects, as follows.
The bulk of the internships this year will be around our work with social media. Over the past year we have built a high-volume social media platform (try it by following @sramana and @1Mby1M) with 200 messages a day. As we reach into newer and diverse regions, we are working to devise and execute culturally and geographically nuanced strategies of social media engagement.
For this internship, you will be driving the corporate engagement for one of the top startup hubs, including those listed here on TechCrunch, using social media mechanisms. This will include reaching out to various entrepreneurship development organizations in the area and working with them to organize business plan competitions. 1M/1M recently conducted one such competition with Microsoft Israel, and more are in the pipeline. You can find the recording here.
This is an opportunity to learn critical lessons in communication and marketing in the real world. Further, you will provide crucial feedback that will help us to refine 1M/1M’s marketing model. The internship and the scholarship together will equip you with knowledge of critical aspects of entrepreneurship.
Do you have the drive to contribute to an ambitious organization? Are you interested in learning how to market to diverse audiences using effective social media marketing strategies? Please fill in your LinkedIn profile in as much detail as possible, and send your cover letter to Sramana Mitra and Ravi Bulusu.
