Startups and Corporates: Teammates, Not Rivals

Written by Teddy Wahle, Startup Analyst Intern

For a tiny startup, corporate America can often seem like the biggest obstacle to achieving a goal like "Changing the World!" It's easy to assume that Fortune 500 monoliths want one thing: to keep everything the same. However, MassChallenge recognizes that the supposed 'conflict' between industrial incumbents and their potential disruptors is myth.

In reality, corporates and startups are both fighting for the same vision: innovations for a better world.

Students Building a Better Startup Ecosystem

“Why does your internship seem so fun?”

I’ve answered this question a few times throughout the summer from my friends working at various companies. The question came in response to hearing about my daily stories from the office such as playing VR video games, eating pancakes made from a 3D printer, starring in a startup promotional video, attending events such as the #MCShowcase17 and PULSE Finale, and going on a scavenger hunt around the city of Boston with a team of startups in our cohort.

Interning with the Most Startup-Friendly Accelerator

This summer, MassChallenge welcomed 50+ interns to support our efforts in catalyzing a global startup renaissance! Across departments, each intern gained valuable professional experience, immersed themselves in the local innovation ecosystem, and lent a hand in helping the world’s most-promising startups launch, grow, and create impact.

… and they had a lot of fun along the way!
