Launched last month, Enternships.com acts a matchmaking service between startups/SMBs and interns. Similar to many dating sites, both parties fill out a profile and publicise what they are looking

The site and idea has been developed by former members of Oxford Entrepreneurs, a student society for entrepreneurship at Oxford University. Currently still in beta, the service is free of charge, however once out of beta the service will provide premium features to both parties.
