E[nstitute] is an educational program for young entrepreneurs that pairs college-aged youth with high proﬁle startups in New York City, melding mentorship, apprenticeship and class- room-based learning to create a comprehensive curriculum. After paying tuition to complete the two-year program, students work for an assigned startup, attend a bootcamp to learn the basic programs and software used by their placement company, attend a custom-designed set of Skillshare classes, complete projects, and observe panel discussions.
Students are paired with startups through a bidding process, where students bid on the companies they most want to work for and companies bid on the fellows they are most interested in taking under their wing. The program currently received 300 applicants for the 2013–2014 program, with 30 companies and 35 founders signed onto the program.
