Announcing: the Launch DFW Internship Program

Launch DFW is currently searching for a few stellar individuals to join our team as interns this coming Spring and Summer. If you want to kick off 2016 with a killer internship at a rapidly growing media startup, we want to hear from you.

Check out the information and opportunities below and shoot us an email with your best pitch on why you should be part of the team.

The Launch DFW Internship Program

Our internship program runs year-round and we accept applicants on a rolling basis. While our internships are unpaid, we do work with you to receive school credit in addition to providing valuable learning opportunities and real-world experience.

In addition to gaining hands-on experience, our internship program provides a valuable learning opportunity: Startup Office Hours. Throughout your internship program, you’ll have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with entrepreneurs, innovators, creatives, and everyone in between. Pick the brains of our mentors and learn to build lasting relationships.

Ideal candidates should be able to commit 10-20 hours each week and work from our Downtown Dallas offices or at one of our partner co-working spaces in North Dallas, Fort Worth, and Denton (for regional editorial interns only).
