The Queen’s Innovation Centre Summer Initiative (QICSI) offers a valuable opportunity for individuals to start their own business or non-profit or further their current venture while being paid and receiving seed funding. QICSI is a 17-week paid summer internship for enterprising post-secondary students and members of the community with a capacity for creativity, a tolerance for risk and an interest in entrepreneurship, corporate or social innovation. Participants have the opportunity to work in a diverse team with bright individuals from across different faculties, backgrounds and experience levels. Coming into the program, individuals may already have an idea, but it is not necessary. QICSI is for students from all programs (undergraduate and graduate) at Queen's and is open to pre-formed ventures and community ventures.
