Atlas Digital Partners Hires 12 Summer Interns

{Birmingham, Ala., June 9, 2020} – If you know Michael Connolly, Managing Partner of Atlas Digital Partners, you quickly realize that Michael is passionate about building companies and developing people.

He also recognizes the importance of bringing national talent to Birmingham. Despite many companies axing their internship programs in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Connolly stayed committed to his mission by expanding the 2020 Summer Atlas Internship Program.

He selected twelve undergraduates from the country’s leading liberal arts colleges such as Williams College, Amherst College, Colby College, Bowdoin College, and the city’s own Birmingham-Southern College. The interns represent their respective institutions as well as their hometowns, which range from Northern California to Birmingham and Lagos to Beijing.

“I am delighted to be working with top-flight students and excited to see what they can accomplish.”

 – Michael Connolly, Atlas Managing Partner

The eight-week internship will allow the students to gain hands-on experience working in digital start-up ventures, while also attending seminars on entrepreneurial leadership hosted by Connolly.
