Jacob Sabel (MiM’20)
Business Development Intern, No Limit Generation
Tell us about your internship.
My work at No Limit Gen, part of the Halcyon Incubator, involves the business development team (comprised of four members) and me applying for grants, reaching out to large humanitarian institutions, family foundations, and high-net-worth-individuals to raise the first round of funding for the high-growth startup.
How does the organization or industry relate to your professional or personal interests?
The mission of NLG calls to me for practical reasons. NLG is a scalable, tech-based, mental health initiative and platform that helps refugees and children across the globe reach their full potential. The culture is the fast-paced, “go-getter” startup culture one would expect. My interests are in entrepreneurship and startups, so it’s been a very harmonious engagement.
How did you find the internship?
I met the coordinator at Halcyon, we hit it off, and he invited me to a “Money and Chakra” event at the Washington Post and to meet the incubator’s entrepreneur fellows. I met the CEO of NLG at the Halcyon House, and the rest was history.
What’s the coolest thing you’ve done so far this academic year?
I’m currently working on my own project that involves building AI systems.
What advice would you give to other MiM students?
I would encourage my peers to explore career paths outside of the norm (investment banking and management consulting). There’s a lot of value in working directly and closely with entrepreneurs at a high-potential startup.
