About ONAMI Graduate Internships in Startups:
ONAMI Graduate Internships in Startups (GIST) Program:  ONAMI will fund internships for qualified grad students or recent graduates at ONAMI portfolio companies for 6-9 months.  This is a great opportunity for a student to determine if the startup environment is an attractive career option. Experience to date has proven the internships beneficial to both company and student.

When a match is found (this is determined by the student and company), ONAMI will enter into an agreement with the company, and the student will become a company employee or contractor.  ONAMI will fund the internship at the rate of $25/hour, paid to the company.  The company will provide the intern with salary (at least $25/hour), supervision, training, materials and mentorship.   (Any additional compensation or benefits are the option of the company.)  ONAMI will fund the company up front for half of the internship.  Brief (non-confidential) monthly reports from the student, as well as a mid-term review by both company and student will determine if the internship will proceed. At that point, ONAMI will fund the remainder of the internship.

We look forward to hearing from students interested in the internships.
