Free Data and Technology Skills Program, Applications Due Friday

Here at the Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship, we were recently contacted by the folks at Independent Software about their free program for college students called A100. Read below for more information from program manager Krishna Sampath:

Apprentice100 is a State-funded Program run by Independent Software, a Connecticut-based product development company. We provide you with free training in the day-to-day skills and technology that startup companies need, and internship/job placement for those who are successful during the program. Last year, 12 students from local universities got internships with local companies – and offers of continued employment to come following graduation. Will you join them this year?

 Our trainings start in late January, when Wesleyan students have returned from Winter break. We may be able to work with the University to arrange shared transportation for students without cars.

 Apply online at by December 20. Repeat applicants welcome.

 Interested students should contact Krishna Sampath, Program Manager, with any questions.
