A New York-based apprentice program aimed at giving young adults experience within innovative companies is expanding to St. Louis.

Enstitute was founded in New York City by Kane Sarhan and Shaila Ittycheria in 2012. The goal was to help connect students who weren’t ready or interested in a traditional path to college get on-the-job experience with start-up companies and entrepreneurs. A second location was opened in Washington, D.C., in January.
