Intern for a startup

Not a founder? That's okay! Gain valuable experience with a startup internship


Meet Olivia

The DEN has been an integral part of my Dartmouth experience, shaping both my extracurricular involvements and professional ambitions. As a DEN host, DEN Associate, and recipient of the Wily Initiative Grant, the DEN has offered me formative experiences and hands on learning experiences as to what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. Globally, the Wily Initiative funded me to travel to Argentina and work at Buenos Aires’s leading startup accelerator and right on campus, I have had the opportunity to attend intimate dinners with inspiring tech entrepreneurs and investors. Thanks so much for making all of these incredible experiences possible!

Apply for the Wily Initiative Grant


The purpose of the DEN Wily Initiative Grant is to provide up to $4,500 in financial assistance for unpaid internships that enable undergraduates to gain exposure and work experience at a technology-based startup during summer breaks or terms away from campus. Dartmouth-founded companies will be given preference, however, all startups formed within the last three (3) years or with an annual revenue less than $1M (US), are eligible. Any full-time undergraduate in good academic and disciplinary standing is eligible to apply. Applicants must be returning to campus for at least one term post internship.
