What our interns think about their Start Me Up internship

“The exposure to startups and their founders was incredible. Being part of a co-working community meant there were so many project opportunities in a variety of business sectors.”

“I can’t recommend the internship enough. It’s exactly what I needed. For many recent graduates or final year students who are panicking about what the future holds, this gives you an insight into something a bit different.”
Suzi White

Durham University

“I spent a truly wonderful month on this program. I worked with the CTO of a startup helping him code their website. I had very limited coding experience before coming here. And by the end of the month, I was developing my own app! I have learned so much and the work I’ve been doing has been more stimulating than anything I’ve done in a long time.”

Abby Mitchell


“I learned a huge variety of essential skills from marketing to web development. I have also had access to mentors and industry leaders to help me with my own startup idea. The wealth of experiences and contacts were invaluable.”
