Graphic Design Intern

At Asulia, we believe how we nourish our bodies and the minds we educate are two of the most impactful ways to effect change. Eating well and doing good go hand in hand. We’re making it easier to eat healthy and support girls’ education by donating a portion of proceeds. It’s changed our life and it can change many others. We’re reinventing veggie foods handcrafted with love with fusion flavors. We’re vegetable obsessed!

We’re currently a 2014 MassChallenge startup finalist. MassChallenge is the world’s largest startup accelerator program and competition and the first of its kind to support high-impact, early-stage entrepreneurs with no strings attached. Their objectives are to promote innovation, collaboration and commercialization, address the seed-stage investment gap, empower novice entrepreneurs, provide educational opportunities for entrepreneurs, and showcase entrepreneurship assets and infrastructure locally, nationally and internationally.

The nonprofit selects 128 startup companies each year to participate in its four-month accelerator program, which provides entrepreneurs access to expert mentors, marketing and media resources, funding opportunities and free office space in Boston. Following the four-month accelerator period, MassChallenge awards over $1 million in grants to the program’s top companies.
