Baldwin Wallace University Center for Innovation & Growth awards Growth Practice internships
The Center for Innovation & Growth is pleased to name its 2016-17 CIG Growth Practice Interns. The 10 high-achieving students from a broad array of backgrounds work as part of a project team on professional consulting projects for CIG clients, including Cliffs Natural Resources, GOJO, Parker Hannifin, OEC, Westfield and more. They conduct secondary market research and primary market research using Voice of the Customer methodology, delivering results and recommendations in client boardroom presentations. Interns complete 4 weeks of presentation coaching and attend Entrepreneur Tours, meeting and learning from area innovators while building social capital.
The internships are made possible through the generous support of The Philip E. & Carole R. Ratcliffe Foundation, which pledged $1M to fund the Ratcliffe Student Fellows Program and its complementary internship program within CIG's Growth Practice. The Foundation's goal is to support students in developing entrepreneurial skillsets.
