The Mitacs Business Strategy Internship (BSI) program provides support for businesses and nonprofits to implement innovation focused business strategies, which includes funding for internships. Organizations partner with am academic supervisor to develop a project proposal where interns provide technical expertise on everything from operations to finance, to marketing, to intellectual property, and beyond to help businesses develop and implement their innovation roadmap. Organizations must provide a financial contribution of $5,000 or $7,500, which is matched by Mitacs. Projects can include multiple interns and span multiple terms. Interns spend about half the term on site working on the issue in question. Applications are accepted year-round.
