MBA students who want to work in Israel on an internship now have an online resource that will help them make the right match. InsideIL is a new website and nonprofit organization with an online matching platform that helps students find internships at Israeli companies across a variety of industries including biotechnology, cyber security, venture capital, and e-commerce.

For both MBA students from the US and Israeli tech firms, InsideIL helps smooth the process of finding the right students for the right positions. InsideIL works with companies in Israel to identify and structure summer internships that will be beneficial for both the company and the intern. Most of the internships offer salaries, and for those that pay less than comparable internships in the US, the organization arranges for government grants for living expenses, flights, and incidentals.

InsideIL only does the introductions; it is not involved in the placement process, which is up to the company. Nevertheless, InsideIL, after just one internship “season,” has achieved an excellent reputation among Israeli companies.

After a successful pilot summer last year that focused mostly on helping Harvard Business School students finds internships in Israel, InsideIL last week announced a slew of new internship opportunities, and will seek to market them to students at the top ten business schools around the country. Companies seeking MBA interns this summer include Shaldor, Israel’s leading consulting firm, UPnRide Robotics, a company developing innovative devices to help people with limb disabilities, and OurCrowd, the world’s largest equity-based crowd funding platform based in Jerusalem, among others.
