About Larta Institute

Larta Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization accelerating innovation and entrepreneurship.
Our mission is to foster science and technology innovation for a sustainable planet.

Our planet is experiencing significant global problems created by human behavior and policies affecting the environment, food, education, energy, and healthcare systems. New science and technology play a critical role in transforming how we sustainably feed, fuel, and heal the world.

Larta was founded in 1993, in Los Angeles, funded by the state of California as a Regional Technology Alliance to stimulate the economic development of technology-based enterprises in Southern California. Larta quickly became the national partner for numerous federal government agencies to commercialize novel research and innovation - including DARPA, NIH, DOE, NSF, NIST, NOAA, and USDA.

Today, our innovation platform and ecosystem accelerate new science and technology from idea to sustainable enterprise - by providing a unique combination of connections, resources, and funding. We have helped over 4,500 startups, and our alumni have raised over $6.5 billion in funds.

Larta Institute is a non-profit mission driven organization and parent organization of our for-profit subsidiary, Larta Inc.

Project Management Intern

March 2022 - May 2022 Los Angeles, CA
“The entire process was well-organized from the start. I went through an onboarding process with HR and then with my manager. They explained Larta's vision and mission, current projects they are working on, my roles and responsibilities as an intern, and how I can contribute to making an impact. I participated in all stakeholder meetings, which provided me with insights into the thought process that drives this organization. In such a short period of time, I was able to collaborate with multiple teams. I had the flexibility to set my working hours with my manager. My manager met with me on a weekly basis to assist me and provide feedback. Overall, it was a fantastic experience.”
