It's that time again. We are hiring two interns for a 6 months period after the summer. Are you a student or young professional, and intrigued by the world of venture capital and tech startups? If yes, do keep on reading.
The hiring process is similar to what we have done in the past, but the role is slightly different and part of a larger, ongoing program and network: 'The Mangrove Fellows'. The internship period is longer, the person will be even more involved in the day-to-day of our team. You will support our investment team across the entire deal sourcing and making process, gain deep insights into our diverse portfolio of companies, and create long-lasting bonds with our team and the broader network - during and after the program.
This role has been a nice launchpad into the fascinating world of venture for the folks who have done it in the past. Some went on to launch their own startup, others joined friends at another VC firm, some founded their own venture fund a couple of years thereafter (Max / Fabric), and some stayed with Mangrove after their internship (myself I was a pre-MBA intern, and look where I am now...).
Here more details about the job. If you are interested, here is our process:
To start, reach out to us in the coming week by:
Sending your CV, including social media links (Linkedin; Optional: Twitter, Blog) to email@example.com
Suggesting one tech company that you think is interesting for Mangrove to invest in. Please give 1-2 reasons (1 paragraph for each max)
Telling us which technology trend or sector excites you and why
Indicating your availability (dates)
From the initial submission, we select and contact a smaller group for individual video call interviews. We expect the process to be finished by mid-July, and candidates should be available to start work in September or October.
As with our office hours initiative EasyVc.co for startup founders, we recognize the difficulties of entering the VC world and strongly encourage people from all backgrounds to apply! It is our intent to recruit at least one fellow from a diverse background.
I am looking forward to hearing from you and reading your applications!
Here a pic from an early morning run last Saturday. I can't help but be in awe of the timelessness of the 'wow effect' of beautiful buildings. The Tuileries Palace was built in the 16th century and hasn't lost an inch of its majesty.
Life is awesome,
