"Besides being surrounded by great mentors and colleagues working for UARF is great place for growth. Maybe more importantly UARF, with its many connections, was a great opportunity for me to meet a variety of people from different backgrounds which helped me expand my network. To this day I still use the knowledge and contacts gained through my time at UARF."
Brett hopes to use his law degree and experience at UARF to find a career in transactional legal and business work. For the past year Brett has assisted startups with legal support, the due diligence process, and organizing and providing feedback for the I-Corps program. UARF has helped him develop numerous legal skills, including reviewing and drafting agreements. In addition, he has learned what it really takes to start a business and how to make that process be as efficient as possible.
Since working with UARF, Alizeh has gotten experience in handling social media, creating the new UARF webpage, and making different marketing content such as flyers and videos. Being able to improve her editing and networking skills are some of the major benefits Alizeh has gained through interning here. Alizeh says her best experience was gaining another internship with the Northeast Ohio Student Venture and it is through both these internships that she has had the chance to work with various startups in the Akron area.
Courtney started with UARF and worked on updating the website; assisting UARF programming such as Starting Line, ArchAngels, and iCorps; and directly serving Akron-area startup companies. This will give Courtney valuable experience in business development and startup company support tasks, which will prove useful as Courtney completes her degree. Other than entrepreneurship, Courtney loves travel and her three rescue dogs. She spent winter break journeying through China and hopes to train her chihuahua Lily to accompany her on the next adventure.
