The Economic Innovation Group (EIG) is an ideas laboratory and bipartisan advocacy organization dedicated to forging a more dynamic, entrepreneurial, and innovative U.S. economy for the 21st century. With its headquarters in Washington, D.C., EIG convenes leading experts from the public and private sectors, develops original policy research, and works to advance creative legislative proposals that will bring new jobs, investment, and economic growth to communities across the nation.
It's time to bring the entrepreneurs and investors at the leading edge of our economy to the table by leveraging their ideas, resources, and innovation to jumpstart broad-based economic growth. It’s time to focus on the practical, bipartisan solutions that can get our economy working for every corner of our country. And it’s time to join ideas with action, developing the policies and new coalitions needed to make them a reality.
That is the role of EIG – advancing innovative solutions to America’s economic challenges.
Research Assistant Intern
June 2017 - July 2017
“This internship was great, I loved that I was able to earn so much experience by doing hands on research in an ongoing project called the Distressed Communities Index. While performing data analysis, I learned how to use Microsoft Excel to its highest capabilities. I also got a peek into the policy and economic development sector and loved every bit of it.”
