2014 has been an incredibly busy year for us; We travelled to meet startups in 17 countries, we invested in 43 new companies and we doubled our team. We’re looking for two smart and ambitious interns to join us as we grow rapidly into 2015.
Interning at Seedcamp doesn’t involve menial work or making tea (but if you offer, we won’t refuse!). You’ll be involved in a wide range of projects, from supporting our team and our mentor network, to assisting in coordinating events and raising sponsorship. Here’s how one of our past interns found the experience.
We pride ourselves on being Europe’s leading and most supportive seed investment fund, so you’ll be sure to learn from us at every opportunity.
Since launching in 2007, our family now includes over 140 of Europe’s most promising startups.
Backed by an awesome team and group of investors, we are incredibly active and run events and invest in startups throughout Europe every month.
Being an intern at Seedcamp
Seedcamp has a Europe-wide approach to seed investment. Managing our events and maintaining our relationships with startups and mentors is an essential, but demanding part of our core activities. We are looking for one or more self-starting full time interns who can tackle some of these projects and also assist the Seedcamp team with operations. We believe the contacts and experience you’ll gain here will be instrumental in starting your own company, getting into venture capital, or staying with us longer term.
