NOT YOUR normal class project. 
NOT your average internship.



The Commons is a bold collaboration between a growing network of southeast Wisconsin colleges and universities, our local business community and the region's entrepreneurs. The program blends student startup ventures with corporate innovation and layers on nearly 500 mentoring professionals to give students a truly unique, real-world experience.


We work with students of ANY major and ANY year in school. If you're a talented and motivated student ready to get out of the classroom, you should join us! Apply your skills, build your network and create something awesome.
