The goal is to develop a breakthrough idea or solution for one of our clients' most pressing, complex, and multi-dimensional problems. This competitive and collaborative program attracts thousands of applicants for several hundred slots.
Simulating a real-world startup accelerator environment, the interns are divided into teams, each working on a different challenge. Throughout the Games, interns receive mentorship from senior leaders, collaborate and experiment in Booz Allen's innovation ecosystem, solve problems using Booz Allen's products and unique engagement models, and leverage the power of rapid prototyping. The summer culminates with a final Challenge Cup competition and presentation to senior leadership.
