Who we are
TheVentureCity is a new venture and acceleration model that helps diverse founders and companies achieve global impact. We are led by an international dream team coming from hyper growth companies like Facebook, Google, WhatsApp, Pinterest, etc. We invest, accelerate startups and love to work with great founders and their teams. We have offices in Miami and Madrid/Spain, and presence in San Francisco and São Paulo/Brazil.
We are a fun, young company founded in 2017 with highly motivated people looking to work hard and have fun while doing it. We are looking for an intern to join our dynamic team and support us through various functions while learning how the startup world works.
Although our Americas headquarters is located in Little Havana, at the heart of Miami, FL, this position will be remote for the time being given the COVID-19 environment.
What you will do
This internship will consist of working primarily with the Growth Accelerator team within TheVentureCity, which focuses on helping software startups grow through a very exclusive, tailor made program. The intern will assist in the evaluation and selection process of startups, preparation and scheduling for Onboarding Week of new startups into our Growth Program, search for new partnerships/benefits for our portfolio of startups, and follow-up with the startups in the program for required information.
Projects can range from collecting and organizing quarterly portfolio review information from our startups, conducting research, creating proposals/presentations, assisting with event planning and execution, performing benchmark analysis, and more.
Who we are looking for
We are looking for an intern that is enthusiastic, confident, builder, fixer, problem solver, optimist at heart that likes to deal with people. As this role is remote, the perfect person for this internship will be great at managing their own time, resourceful to look things up when they are stuck, not be afraid to ask for help, flexible, and be proactive.
This person should have basic Excel skills, familiarity with social media platforms, great organizational skills, attention to detail, and an interest in venture capital and startups.
We expect deep interest in technology and tech companies. Must speak English. Spanish is a plus.
What we offer
This is a part-time role working 4 or 5 hours per day, Monday to Friday, ideally at the same time every day. Commitment will be 6 months provided that objectives and expectations are met on both sides. Details will be discussed during the interview. The internship will be paid and will offer the opportunity for course credit in case the university allows.
Applications close the second week of November and pre-selected candidates will be contacted for a virtual interview.
