    CHAMPAIGN - The Research Park was featured in Community Concierge Magazine in an article on the booming tech community in Champaign-Urbana. EnterpriseWorks tenants Aqueous-Solutions, LLC and PhotoniCare, Inc. were highlighted by the magazine as examples of the diverse field of tech startups within Research Park.

    Speaking with Community Concierge Magazine, Aqueous-Solutions founder Craig Bethke said that Champaign-Urbana offers a wide array of resources to help tech startups develop and commercialize their products, which can make the area even more appealing to startups than Silicon Valley. 

    "If you like working in tech and want to develop a quality product at a rational growth rate, Champaign makes more sense," Bethke told the magazine. "The area offers startups two major factors Silicon Valley never can: stability and affordibility."

    PhotoniCare co-founder Ryan Shelton explained how the EnterpriseWorks startup incubator helped contribute to the success of his own startup.

    "For those new companies, there are a tremendous amount of resources and support through the EnterpriseWorks incubator," Shelton told Community Concierge Magazine. "EnterpriseWorks provides verything from office and wet lab space, to shared conference and machining space, to entrepreneurial seminars and workships that will help launch a new business, as well as a great collaborative atmosphere and plenty of free food and drinks."

    Read the full article in Community Concierge Magazine through the following links: Page 1, Page 2, Page 3.

    MAGNet (55886)

    State Farm has developed a unique internship opportunity for graduate students at the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign—the Modeling and Analytics Graduate Network (MAGNet). MAGNet interns apply their statistical modeling and analytic skills to a wide variety of business problems faced by the State Farm organization.

     

    MAGNet is similar to a 50% graduate assistantship offered by the University, and interns receive hourly pay comparable to that offered by the University for graduate assistants, as well as full tuition assistance for the duration of the internship. During the academic year, interns work 20 hours per week. During summer terms, students work full time and receive proportionately higher earnings.

     

    Students who are interested in participating in MAGNet are encouraged to apply as soon as they are accepted into an applicable graduate program at the University of Illinois. Most MAGNet interns are in a Statistics Department graduate program, but graduate students in other highly quantitative disciplines may also be considered. Students whose graduate program begins in the fall are encouraged to begin their MAGNet internships during the preceding summer.

     

    While participating in the MAGNet program, students are evaluated and given consideration for full time postgraduate employment at State Farm’s corporate offices in Bloomington, Illinois, Atlanta, Georgia, or Champaign, Illinois.

     

    Key Responsibilities

    MAGNet interns apply their predictive modeling and data analysis skills to a variety of business problems, including:

    ∙ Underwriting and Pricing Risk

    ∙ Claims

    ∙ Forecasting

    ∙ Banking

    ∙ Marketing

    ∙ Evaluating new statistical methods and tools for potential use by State Farm Modelers

     

    Desired Knowledge, Skills, Abilities

    ∙ Applicants must be accepted or currently enrolled in an approved graduate program at UIUC

    ∙ Majors: Statistics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Finance, Economics, Actuarial Science

    ∙ Statistical modeling and/or data mining

    ∙ Data analysis and experience with database tools

    ∙ Computer programming (especially SAS)

    ∙ Communication and presentation skills

     

    Hours and Compensation

    During the academic year, MAGNet interns work 20 hours per week, but schedules are flexible. During the summer, interns work full time. MAGNet is comparable to a 50 percent graduate assistantship, with proportionately higher compensation during fulltime work periods. As with an assistantship, tuition costs are covered. Some State Farm benefits may also apply

     

    Timing

    Candidates are encouraged to apply early—upon acceptance into an applicable Illinois graduate program is ideal. Candidate selection and entry into the program takes place yearround, but the vast majority of candidates apply in spring to start in summer. Candidates whose graduate programs begin in the fall are encouraged to follow this track and apply in the spring.
