Will a startups take someone in and provide a non-traditional inside looking out experience?

I have been thinking outside the box for a way to advance entrepreneurship confidence and success rates.
It seems quite obvious to me that the best way to accomplish this is through an aspiring entrepreneur actually getting a real world experience from an inside looking out perspective rather than a class, advise or some off the shelf course. I guess you can call it sort of an entrepreneurial internship. Does anyone know of any startups who have done or is doing this?

Any capacity you join an early stage startup in will have elements of entrepreneurial training, since you'll be working with the founders and early employees directly.

I believe that Babson College in Wellesley, MA has an MBA program that includes internships in early-stage companies. You could inquire. (Babson is rated No. 1 in the country for Entrepreneurial Studies.)

All startups have a uniqueness, it's a free for all! There is no startup structure which is major reason for 80% failure rate, funding is the most inefficient and ineffective; major waste of time and money.There are many points, 1) location can be a major determentfor startups with zero access to investors; many additional major points, creating a report explaining the slow economic development.

As a Lean Architect and Root Cause Analyst,Refill Depot'sexperiencegainedpriceless insight, I detest the funding stage which is the most frustrating experience however found the most sophisticated network after 2.5 years!

Great questionTyrone Thomas Jr.I would suggest you to find someone or anyone from your own office to step apart from your organization and start functioning independently. Let him or her have a third party approach on the current business environment related to your industry. His or her views needs to be independent and impartial. If he or she is giving a biased opinion, you better take note of it because it wouldn't help in the long run.
