St. Francis College, always on the cutting edge of education, has partnered with Ikove Venture Partners to give its students the opportunity to intern with startup companies and network with the hundreds of companies based in Industry City.
“While there is little doubt our professors provide a first-rate education for our students, this partnership will place faculty and students alike in an entrepreneurial eco-system that is second to none while also expanding learning opportunities in very significant ways,” added St. Francis president Miguel Martinez-Saenz.
The new space is set to open before the Fall 2018 semester begins and will also hire two new Entrepreneurs in Residence.
“The Ikove team as well as our portfolio companies are excited to expand our presence through this partnership with St. Francis,” added Rodolfo Bellesi, co-founder and principal of Ikove Venture Partners.
