The Happy Valley LaunchBox, powered by PNC Bank (the “LaunchBox”) is part of “Invent Penn State,” a Pennsylvania-wide initiative to spur economic development, job creation and student career success, and is one of 21 Innovation Hubs sponsored by Penn State. The LaunchBox, based in downtown State College, is an accelerator for startups founded by students, faculty and staff of Penn State as well as by community members. During the summer, the LaunchBox hosts the “Summer Founders Program,” through which a number of Penn State teams participate in a summer-long program that is designed to help accelerate startup businesses by providing them with the funding, resources, and mentorship they need to work full-time on their business over the summer. The LaunchBox is seeking a part-time Intern for summer 2019 from Penn State Law who will have completed the first year of legal study. The Intern will work directly with startup companies, performing tasks that are both business and legal in nature. The Intern’s work with the startups will cover a broad range of issues, including assessing their legal needs, coordinating legal projects with Penn State’s two legal clinics that are based at the LaunchBox (the Entrepreneur Assistance Clinic and the IP Legal Clinic) and performing market research for the teams’ business objectives. The Intern will work an average of 20 hours per week for a total of 10 weeks and will receive a total of $3,300 in compensation. The Intern will report to the director of the LaunchBox, Dr. Lee Erickson.
