College students from all Sullivan Foundation partner schools are invited to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime internship opportunity or combined internship/course credit option for the MO Summit, a yearly industry-leading social enterprise and business leadership event taking place May 12-13 in Portland, Oregon.

Presented by Big Path Capital and Real Leaders magazine, the MO Summit convenes leaders who are scaling high-growth, positive-impact companies. Nearly 200 CEOs from the most successful social impact businesses in the U.S., Canada and several other countries will attend this informative, changemaking industry gathering. In addition, the first RealLeaders 100 (the top CEOs of social enterprises) will be recognized at the event.

Student interns will have the opportunity to meet, assist, network with and learn from top executives that are creating positive change through their businesses, innovating leadership, and building unique, socially impactful mission-driven companies. Student interns will be exposed to cutting-edge social enterprises and B corporations that are redefining archaic ways of thinking about ourselves, our employees, our companies, our industry, and the world.
