The Farbstein Internship in Entrepreneurial Studies

What: CBRI works with Israeli start-ups, transforming innovative ideas and designs into marketable medical products for the world market. Launched in Spring 2016, the Farbstein Internship at CBRI provides select students the opportunity to work directly with scientists, inventors, and entrepreneurs connected with Israeli life-science start-ups. Interns learn about international trade, write market plans, and pitch the product or idea of their assigned start-up in a Shark Tank-style presentation.

Who: Applicants must be self-starters and be able to commit 10 hours/week to the internship. All majors (including MBA students) are invited to apply. Three hours of academic credit (if taken for credit) plus a $500 stipend will be awarded to each intern. Per Roper St. Francis policy, interns will be subject to a mandatory Background Check and Substance Test.

To Apply: Send your transcript, resume, and statement of interest to Mark Swick at If taken for credit, students must enroll by January 13, 2018.
