Since its inception 10 years ago we have been a strong supporter of the Fulbright BEST (Business Exchange and Student Training) program, sponsoring internships in Silicon Valley of high potential Italian PhD graduates/ entrepreneurs.

This year Mind the Bridge has been selected as the entity in charge of the program beginning in 2018, in a renewed version: training the next generation of Corporate Innovation leaders in Silicon Valley.  

The backbone of the program will be a six-month intensive program (24 weeks) in Entrepreneurship and Management at the Mind the Bridge Startup School in San Francisco, California, plus a paid internship in a key local institution.

Applications are open. The deadline for submission will be March 31.
