JOB: PURSECASE: Internship Opportunity

My name is Kelley Weaver I graduated from USC in 2009.  I am an entrepreneur and appeared on ABC’s hit show “Shark Tank” in November of 2013 with my business, pursecase. We secured a deal on the show and are currently business partners with Lori Greiner, the “Queen of QVC.”

We have had a very successful first year with pursecase- a patented and trademarked product- and now that we are approaching our second year of business we are looking to grow even further. I have a great team and we are looking to bring on someone who is a critical thinker in business to help evaluate pursecase operations and strategize for the future. The student would be invited to help us look at the overall market, competitors, and key value propositions, build some operational plans and recommend different paths to move forward. They would also be invited to help us expose holes and identify opportunities that pursecase can leverage to grow the business.

As a proud USC alumni my first thought was to reach out to Marshall and see if this interest anyone. I am thinking this would be a great opportunity for a MBA student to earn valuable business experience outside the classroom, and in a real company with real opportunity.

I am happy to help mentor the student as well and share my experiences as an entrepreneur as well as with my journey on Shark Tank, etc. pursecase is my second business, I first started a lifestyle PR company called Melrose PR which continues to thrive today, and we share office space in Santa Monica, CA.

Thanks so much and Fight On!

RESOURCE: USC Gould Small Business Clinic

“The USC Law Small Business Clinic (SBC) provides basic corporate legal assistance to small businesses, entrepreneurs and non-profit organizations that cannot afford to pay market rates for legal services. The purpose of the SBC is to give students hands-on experience handling transactional legal problems while providing assistance to small business owners in the greater Los Angeles area. The SBC provides an opportunity for these businesses to implement legal protections and business structures available within our legal system and to obtain guidance in complying with a variety of legal requirements, even though many of these businesses are not able to afford the high costs of business legal services.”
