Ladder was founded with the mission to create a bridge for talented, ambitious high-school students to work with world class start-ups. Our goal is to give our interns all the resources they need to succeed as young professionals - training from our founder's time at McKinsey, coaching from world-class coaches, and managers who care about their success.
Ladder Internships offers high school students a unique entry into the startup world. Our rigorous selection process - including a written application and an interview - identifies standout candidates who exhibit both academic excellence and a drive for innovation. Applicants undergo interviews to assess their compatibility with our high-caliber startup partners, including those led by Harvard alumni and Y-Combinator graduates. Chosen interns engage directly with founders and teams at the companies to contribute to substantial projects, ensuring real-world experience and professional growth. They also benefit from professional development sessions with SparkWise, preparing them for a future in the professional world. With Ladder, students step into challenging roles, turning potential into professional success.
Over the past year, Ladder Internships has received 600+ applications worldwide. We've welcomed over 100 interns from 18 different countries, collaborating with over 50 startups that are ready to mentor and nurture new talent. Committed to accessibility, we've also distributed over $50,000 in financial aid to empower ambitious students on their professional journeys.
