BioSig Technologies Announces Participation in Bates College’s Purposeful Work Initiative
Santa Monica, CA, March 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioSig Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: BSGM), a medical device company developing a proprietary biomedical signal processing platform designed to address an unmet technology need for the $4.6 billion electrophysiology (EP) marketplace, today announced that the Company will be extending its summer internship positions to Bates students in the summer of 2018.
Located in Lewiston, Maine, Bates is internationally recognized as a leading college of the liberal arts, attracting 2,000 students from across the U.S. and around the world. Since 1855, Bates has been dedicated to educating the whole person through creative and rigorous scholarship in a collaborative residential community. Committed to opportunity and excellence, Bates has always admitted students without regard to gender, race, religion, or national origin. Cultivating intellectual discovery and informed civic action, Bates prepares leaders sustained by a love of learning and zeal for responsible stewardship of the wider world.
The Purposeful Work initiative developed by Bates is designed to support students as they explore interests, deepen skills and build their networks. Introduced under the leadership of current President Clayton Spencer, the program has successfully engaged some of the world’s leading companies as its core employers. The objectives of the program align with BioSig’s mission to provide a highly immersive learning experience. All students interning with BioSig are compensated by the company for their contributions, including travel and housing expenses. This additional financial support for student-interns is the company’s way of ensuring that students gain important applied experiences over the summer, without the possibility of increasing their debt burden.
“The internship component of the Purposeful Work initiative is successful because of the strong support we receive from Core Employers like Ken Londoner and his team at BioSig,” states Allen Delong, Senior Associate Dean for Purposeful Work at Bates. “For the CEO to be as involved, as collaborative, and as generous with his time and financial resources as Ken has been, I can guarantee Bates students will have a phenomenal summer experience at BioSig.”
“We believe that it is our duty to give the students the best possible career start. We have created a unique program, which gives interns a 360-degree overview of the business and challenges their critical thinking needed to deliver high-impact work in an entrepreneurial environment. We were impressed with the consistent commitment to excellence that Bates demonstrates, and we are confident that our partnership will allow us to take both of our programs to the next level,” commented Kenneth L. Londoner, Chairman and CEO of BioSig Technologies, Inc.
