SweatID is proud to announce its involvement in this summer’s EDGE Fellows Program. This is the company’s 16th year hosting the highly sought after program.
According the EDGE, the program “helps companies explore and validate new growth opportunities by engaging talented students and experienced business mentors in cross-functional teams.”
In addition, students involved in the program serve as full-time, independent consultants for their host company. At the end of the program, students complete a comprehensive report and presentation to their company that provides actionable and well-supported recommendations.
“We’re thrilled to partner with EDGE this summer,” said Chelsea Monty-Bromer, Chief Technology Officer of Sweat ID. “The highly intelligent students we’ve been matched with will help us with research projects this summer, among other real-world activities and we can’t wait to continue exploring this mutually-beneficial partnership.”
