Mumbai,1st June 2023: Wakefit.co, India’s leading D2C sleep and home solutions company, is thrilled to announce the final candidates who have been selected for the Sleep Internship Season 3. Following an extensive screening process, 12 individuals from diverse backgrounds and various cities across the country have been chosen to participate in this unique 100-day sleep journey. As a testament to the interns’ commitment, Wakefit.co will pay a stipend of INR 1 lakh to all interns, and one intern will be crowned the Sleep Champion of the year, earning a grand prize of up to INR 10 lakhs at the end of the internship.
This year’s intern cohort is composed of individuals with diverse backgrounds, hailing from cities such as Mizoram, Pondicherry, Jaipur, Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi, and Vijayawada. Ranging in age from 20 to 45 years, the interns bring a rich blend of perspectives to the program. From multitasking mothers of twins to talented rappers, entrepreneurs, IT analysts, homemakers, and set designers, each intern possesses a unique profile that adds depth and variety to the Wakefit Sleep Internship.
All sleep interns will be provided with a Wakefit Orthopedic Memory Foam Mattress, a fitness band with a sleep tracker, and a thoughtfully designed sleep kit. The sleep package will aid in tracking and improving the interns’ sleep patterns over the period of 100 days, and showcase the progress of each intern as they attempt to demonstrate their dedication to sleep. This year, Wakefit. co has collaborated with prominent brands such as The Souled Store, Ekam, Bare Necessities, The Thela Gaadi, Tea Trunk, and Yoga Bar, to provide each intern with a specially curated sleep kit. The Sleep Internship Season 2 crowned Triparna Chakraborty, a 26-year-old Kolkata resident, as India’s first Sleep Champion who took home a grand remuneration of INR 5 lakhs last year.
Chaitanya Ramalingegowda, Director and Co-founder of Wakefit.co, said, “We launched Wakefit.co in March 2016 to revolutionize the quality of sleep among Indians. In line with our brand ethos, the Sleep Internship serves as an extension of our commitment, fostering an impactful narrative that highlights the significance of sleep health. With the commencement of the Sleep Internship Season 3, we hope to set off a series of conversations around sleep health and aim to enlighten and encourage Indians to embrace positive sleep hygiene.”
Prateek Malpani, Head of Brand, Wakefit.co, said, “Sleep is at the core of our brand philosophy at Wakefit.co, and the Sleep Internship is a testament to our commitment to raise awareness around the importance of good sleep. During the 100-day internship, the interns will engage in a wide range of activities and expert sessions that are aimed at improving physical and mental health, and more importantly sleep health. We are excited to see the interns embark on this transformative journey and look forward to the positive impact it will have on their lives, and on the lives of people who will get inspired to sleep better after seeing them complete the internship and earn money for sleeping.”
The Wakefit Sleep Internship has been a sought after program and has clocked in a significant number of registrations year on year. With a rather rigorous selection process of three rounds – entry shortlist round, video resume round and personal interview, 12 interns were handpicked from the lot based on the quality of their interview and their passion for sleep for this season. Over the last three years, the Sleep Internship has cumulatively garnered an overwhelming response of over 10 lakh plus registrations from across the country, and Season 3 marks another milestone, with a total of 50 interns, including this year’s selected candidates.
