On February 12, 2016, John F. Kennedy Atlantic Forum launched a high school project that takes advantage of Berlin as a leading hotspot for entrepreneurship by offering students the opportunity for internships working shoulder-to-shoulder with start-ups. In collaboration with the leadership of John F. Kennedy High School (Berlin) and JFKS Teacher Benjamin Bingham’s computer science class, several internships will be developed this Spring as well as other student relevant entrepreneurship projects for later in the year, sponsored by GTEC. To kick-off the program, the computer students were briefed on the Berlin entrepreneurial scene by Luisa Maier, of the German Tech Entrepreneurship Center (GTEC), Clark Parsons of Pflueger International, and John Fogarasi, Exec. Director, JFKAF. The internships will be held at incubators such as GTEC and supervised and organized by JFKAF.
