Key Bank has partnered with the UVU Entrepreneurship Institute in the Woodbury School of Business to increase the number of opportunities for women to join with high-growth, start-up teams. National studies show that women represent fewer than 1 in 4 entrepreneurs, but those who work in high-growth businesses earn about 33% more than average wage earner.

Key Bank has generously funded three, 3-month, paid internships, valued at up to $2400 each, for UVU women students. Our UVU Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Ryan Westwood, has nominated three outstanding UVU startup companies to receive the AWE-some experience of choosing a talented female entrepreneur to work with their team. The three startup companies are:

Skeduna is launching their inaugural product, CourseKeepers, a free mobile tool students. Skeduna eases the pain of navigating registration and class scheduling. Dubwars Games has recently completed a successful beta run and a KickStarter campaign, resulting in a healthy number of pre-sales of their mesmerizing gaming platform. Lionheart Innovations solves a significant challenge for those with ongoing medical needs with a comprehensive mobile app.

So if you're a woman entrepreneur studying at UVU, and want to experience the exhilaration, frustration, and AWE of joining with one of these scalable and exciting start-ups, (all the while, earning up to $14/hr.) please fill this brief questionnaire.

The AWE interviews will be held in conjunction with the UVU Startup Showcase on Wednesday, April 9, from 3:00 - 6:00 PM in the Sorensen Center Grande Ballroom. Other students interested in internships with other exciting startups are also invited to attend.
