The Community


More energy, more enthusiasm, more attention to detail, Edge Interns just generally improve the energy and excitement in the office.

We have seen a lot of help with work that requires a smart and interested mind with organizational skills and then take a lot of information and synthesize it to make it useful.

The edge interns' interest led them to learn a lot about technology... and to their assistance with projects developing infrastructure for enterprise innovations.

The Edge Intern program is a warm and genuine approach to developing tomorrow's leaders. I've worked with Francis and his team on a few high profile projects. With little guidance and incredible time constraints - the results were astounding.

The edge interns have been diligent and turned their hand to many different tasks in marketing, writing, and sales support, and has also been a breath of fresh air and a pleasure to have around.

A year ago I made the decision to move from Texas to San Francisco to pursue my passion for design and health tech, and I haven't looked back since. Some of my closest friends have come from Edge and I wouldn't be where I am today without the Edge Network and Francis’s help as a mentor.
