About Paragon One

Paragon One turns company work projects into scalable online learning experiences called Remote Externships. For students, remote externships are more flexible alternatives to internships through a remote work environment. For companies like Hewlett-Packard, Facebook, Zillow, venture capital firms, consulting firms, and more, remote externships are early talent identification and training programs that can reach overlooked and underserved student populations. Paragon One also powers experiential learning for institutions such as Case Western Reserve, Colorado College, Dulwich College International, Swarthmore, Shorelight Education, and The Opportunity Network.

Our platform is designed to onboard companies quickly while providing access to numerous project workflows in areas such as product, strategy, marketing, business development, finance, and data analytics. Students learn from companies while receiving support from teaching assistants and collaborating with other students on solutions to problems. We save companies 7 figures and thousands of manager hours per year compared to running similar student programs in-house by limited the time companies invest to one manager hour per week and limiting the need for HR time.

Paragon One was founded by MIT alums and backed by YCombinator, Foundation Capital, University Ventures, Learn Capital, and Jason Calacanis.
