Santa Fe Business Incubator (SFBI) President and CEO Marie Longserre says the Incubator is delighted to sponsor summer internships for university students interested in entrepreneurship.
 
As Dakota and Josh talk with Incubator graduates and clients, they’re uncovering new stories, sharing fresh perspectives and personalizing 15 years of SFBI history.
 
At a recent presentation to the Incubator Board of Directors, Josh said, “One thing that has surprised me is how many local businesses I’ve grown up knowing about that were started at the Incubator.”
 
Dakota expressed surprise at the wide diversity of businesses with whom he’s talked. “I wasn’t expecting to find high tech, as well as art appraisal, distilled spirits and more.”

Dakota Day, is currently pursuing an MBA at Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, with a concentration on entrepreneurship. His parents, Jimmy and Jennifer Day, live in Santa Fe.
 
“Because I plan to go into business for myself one day, SFBI’s focus on helping startup entrepreneurs is one of the main things that drew my interest to this internship,” he said. “I look forward to learning more about startups and incubation this summer.”

Josh Lochner, a senior at the Olin Business School, Washington University in St. Louis, is majoring in Economics and Strategy as well as Entrepreneurship. He grew up in Santa Fe. His grandfather, Mort Lipton,  served on the Incubator Board of Directors 1998-2001. Parents Rob and Bonny Lochner live in Santa Fe.
 
“I’m interested in commercial start-ups as well as social entrepreneurship,” he stated.  “I plan to complete my senior year and hope to join the Peace Corp before I start my own business."

Interns Josh Lochner and Dakota Day talk with serial entrepreneur John Elling of Acoustic Biosystems.
