Kiswe Welcomes GED Interns from Korea

 

It’s an exciting time and a full house at our Kiswe New Jersey office! Each summer, Kiswe welcomes students from various universities in Korea for internships through the GED program: Global Entrepreneurship by Doing.

 
 

GED was launched 6 years ago between Kiswe and KAIST university and has since expanded to include other universities. The GED program gives students an opportunity to experience startup life firsthand, rather than learning it only in a classroom. We are thrilled to partner with Korean universities and students as Korea continues to be the #1 country for mobile connectivity and is often the first in adopting digital media technologies.

Students go through a rigorous selection process to enter the program and are carefully screened by their respective universities. This year, the six interns selected from KAIST and Sogang University will work in areas including design, engineering, and marketing. Over the course of the summer, students will contribute to a variety of Kiswe products including working directly on our CloudCast technology.

They will have the opportunity to contribute to user testing, design and implementation, and give valuable feedback on how their generation consumes digital media, shaping the future of our products. Students will present their summer projects and key learnings to the company at the end of their stay.

GED interns have the opportunity to contribute lasting ideas to Kiswe and stay involved beyond their internship. In fact, Woong Park, a member of our Korea team, was one of the first interns through our KAIST program in 2014 and returned to Kiswe in 2017 as a full-time employee.

In addition to their professional development, the students will explore some exciting US cities like DC and NYC, where Kiswe employees will host them.

We’re looking forward to another exciting summer with our interns, and can’t wait to see what special talents and insights they will bring to Kiswe this year. We hope to offer them a true startup experience that will help shape their futures as entrepreneurs!
