We would like to give special thanks to Barney Santos the head of Entrepreneurship & Innovation for #Calstate for building #Launchforce.
With the help of a pilot grant from AT&T, the Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation Barney was able to build a new internship program called #LaunchForce!
This program is intended to help women, minorities, immigrants, and first generation students from underrepresented communities get well-paid internships in companies that are in the Los Angeles startup ecosystem! That means real paying jobs in technology startups, fast growing companies, VC & Angel investment firms, Co-working spaces, and so on...Oh, and these aren't your traditional coffee fetching, dry cleaning getting, or daily filing internships...these are high skill developing internships where students will be working day to day with the company on a huge project they'll have to deliver at the end of the 10 weeks that will demonstrate everything they've learned.
Barney has been working on this project since June. We are excited to be selected as one of 4 amazing local companies!
We are excited to work with our new intern #Prathibha Gubbi Prakash. Prathibha will be joining our current team of Developers. We are happy to have her part of the team.
Thank you from #LashGirlClub #lookgoodfeelgooddogood
