We are thrilled to welcome six talented summer associates to the 25madison and 25mHealth teams! Our summer associate program is instrumental in identifying outstanding individuals, many of whom eventually join us as full-time members or even become founders.

Our summer associates dive right into the action, engaging in internal incubations and collaborating closely with our studio and venture investing teams. They undertake independent research on various industries and sometimes even suggest their own incubation ideas. This internship provides hands-on experience in every facet of our business, from building and operating to investing. With opportunities such as one-on-one meetings with leadership and after-work social events, our program offers an immersive and dynamic experience.
