REP Program

The Remote Entrepreneurship Project (REP) Program was created by the Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship and Post-Graduate Planning & Experiential Education in response to the delays or disruptions many Case Western Reserve University students experienced to their planned summer jobs and internships as a consequence of COVID-19.

Previous REP Sessions

For summer 2020, we received approximately 150 project submissions and 200 student applicants. Students major in a variety of subjects, such as business management, biochemistry, economics, political science, cognitive science, computer science, finance and psychology. Startups, about 70% of which are located in Greater Cleveland, range from business-to-business software companies to real estate, educational technology, consumer products and services, and well beyond.

Projects include building a software platform for supply chains, conducting market research, producing promotional videos and engaging in graphic design work, among many other opportunities. Students commit a minimum of 10 hours of work per week, for about six weeks and are compensated with a $500 stipend. Students are enrolled in Post-Graduate Planning & Experiential Education’s Practicum, which will provide staff support, transcript notation, as well as complementary programming throughout the summer to foster a cohort experience.
