Don’t Settle For A Boring Internship Job.
We want to break the stereotype of mundane, office internships where you spend your waking hours working as a “kuli”. Here at NEXT Academy, we believe startup internships should be brain-stimulating, exciting, and especially challenging.
Think of it like an accelerated, learning bootcamp for interns. And we know bootcamps.
