The Knoxville Entrepreneur Center serves as the front door for entrepreneurs in Knoxville. We offer educational classes, coaching opportunities, events and meet-ups for startups and entrepreneurs in the greater Knoxville area. In the summer, we typically have an accelerator-type program where we work with one or more local businesses or startups to focus on different aspects of their business (marketing, sales, website, etc.), and our interns are very important to the success of this summer program! By pairing students with real companies, the startups receive immensely valuable work while interns gain real-world experience.
In the past, our summer specialists have had a variety of projects that they would work on – everything from market research, social media management, data analytics, website development, public relations, content creation, blog writing, etc. Some past intern projects have included brand development, digital marketing strategy, and web building. The exact scope will depend on the intern and their talents, as well as the needs of the business(es) we work with.
- We are passionate about passionate people. Ideal interns are ready to learn and have a good attitude.
- Experience with media, PR, marketing, content creation, website, sales, graphic design, or data analytics a plus!
