Your skills. Your network. Your career.
Accelerate it all.
We’re seeking the most motivated students from across the Milwaukee region for the most insane hands-on experience we could dream up. We’ll get you an entire portfolio of real-world work, get you plugged into our network of inspiring professionals, and get you set up with a mindset for creative innovation. This is your quickest and easiest way to get dropped directly into the middle of the awesome opportunities in the region.
Basically, this is everything we wish we had while we were in school!
(plus, it’s free!)
What will I be doing?
We'll put you on a cross-functional team of other driven students from schools across the region and we’ll explore emerging technology, practice creative thinking methodology, and build professional skills. Every three weeks, we’ll give you a new, real-world challenge to solve. We’ll bring in a steady stream of local professionals and community leaders to make valuable network connections.
Am I a good fit?
We're looking for driven students that want to solve cool problems. We look for students of ANY major and ANY year in school. And we couldn't care less what your GPA is. Instead, we look at the following "personas" for our program:
Hackers - technical and engineering minds
Hipsters - designers, artists, and creatives
Hustlers - sales, marketing, finance, and business
Handlers - coordinators, organizers, and communicators
When + Where is it?
