Mitacs is bringing their Business Strategy Internship (BSI) program back for a second year! The BSI connects students from academic institutions with businesses and nonprofits to support innovation. With the guidance of an academic supervisor, these interns provide technical expertise on everything from operations to finance, to marketing, to intellectual property, and beyond to help businesses develop and implement their innovation roadmap—and Mitacs funding will support you to bring these students onboard!
Mitacs, which designs and delivers research and training programs in Canada, also administers the Accelerate Program, which supports organizations to enlist students to work on research projects.
Both the BSI and Accelerate programs will match an organization’s funding towards the project, up to $7,500, which covers a student’s stipend. BSIs are focused on designing and implementing an innovation strategy to tackle a business problem. Meanwhile, Accelerate supports research projects that are eligible for peer-review.
