C SCHOOL students are professionals and specialists with a wide variety of competencies. On their startup teams, they work on weekly top-level tasks with startup founders and mentors to scale products in the US market and achieve SMART goals.
During the six-month internship, each student gets experience in each key position within the startup: CPO, CMO, CTO, CBDO, and even CEO. Every student is a leader. Our graduates become founders of future startups or C-level managers. To achieve success in the most aggressive and constantly changing tech market in the United States, it is necessary to gain practical experience and knowledge in various areas of building a company.
Each task is solved using Lean Startup methodology. Together with our coaches and mentors, students build business hypotheses, validate them in the real market and, if successful, scale them up. All this work is accompanied by a track record of implemented features in a US operating startup.
