If you’ve got a less specialised skill set, you can still be a part of the team in an unpaid capacity. Interns assist in the delivery of the programme as well as day-to-day operations. Interns do what needs to be done, as the demand arises. The lab is a fast paced environment, so interns will need to have a close attention to detail. In return, you’ll get great flexibility and exposure to the fast-paced world of tech start-ups. You’ll need to have excellent written and verbal communications skills, attention to detail, and a passion for innovation. You’ll need to be a sponge – a willingness to learn and absorb as much as possible.
