How can I intern for a start-up? (My major is accounting)

How should I go about finding internships at start-ups? I am getting a master's in Accounting (my BA is in English and I also have an MA in Writing). I'm 25 and, not wanting the make the same mistake as last time, I know I need to do some internships and get experience. I'm really interested in start-ups, I might even start my own company one day, but right now I want to get involved in one.

I could show any interested parties my resume but its mostly education with the typical sorts of teenage/college job experience thrown in there. I had a 3.2 for my BA and I have a 4.0 in Accounting so far. I go to Georgia State; I did my BA at Ohio State. Also, I built a website along with the help of a graphic designer and coder. I'm have many interests but I do a lot of investing and I'm pretty good with computers, especially Excel.
If I had my pick, I'd really like to go somewhere exciting like Silicon Valley or NYC and get involved with some cool idea with a lot of venture capital behind it (I'm dreaming here so bear with me). I'm ambitious and I like to aim high.
Thanks in advance.
