About Students for Startups

Students for Startups eases the time and cost barriers of effective internship programs with off-site managed intern centers. SFS centers strengthen workforce development and support sustainable net job creation by providing diverse training to students, volunteer opportunities and skill building for workforce members in transition, and research and resources for communities and organizations.

The fail rate of the valuable, viable independently owned businesses that have the potential to create the most net jobs is high, and job creation rates drop significantly with decreased startup rates and increased failure rates. Students for Startups’ collaboration model offers a way to improve success rates for growing businesses while contributing to more diverse workforce skills and a better understanding of and support for sustainable net job creation. – Jeri Vespoli, Founder
