Five Oklahoma college students will sample entrepreneurial life in an advanced technology start-up company for 10 weeks this summer as participants in the second i2E Fellows program.
Sponsored by the Greater Oklahoma Chamber, the i2E Fellows program is open to participants in the 2009 or 2010 Donald W. Reynolds Governor’s Cup business plan competitions. They serve 10-week paid Fellowships working on specific projects that match their skill set.
The fellows earn a stipend of $6,000 for undergraduates or $8,000 for graduate students, with costs shared on a 50-50 basis by the i2E Fellows program and the participating companies.
Participating companies for the 2010 Fellows program and proposed projects for the Fellows are:
Emotion Media, a Tulsa-based company that transforms digital photos and video into professional, production-quality media presentations with music, motion and special effects.
ENB Science, a Ponca City company that incorporates human pharmaceutical quality and technology for use in companion animal nutritional products.
MediaQuake, the Oklahoma City-based parent company of BuzzVoice, which converts news and blogs into audio files.
Orthocare Innovations, an Oklahoma City research organization in the field of orthotics and prosthetics.
Otologic Pharmaceuticals, an Oklahoma City company created specifically to commercialize promising technologies that address novel solutions for hearing and balance health.
