The SUSI program matches Caltech undergraduates with startups in the greater Los Angeles area for unique summer internships. Caltech faculty and the Office of Technology Transfer and Corporate Partnerships coordinate with outside companies to secure internship opportunities that will expose students to the unique startup environment and help to develop the students' skills in a real-world business setting. As of 2016, the SUSI program is funded by Caltech alumnus Olivier Cojot-Goldberg (BS '87/MS '88).
