Grow with us - Start your career at the IU!
The IU Venture Internship is a unique opportunity for ambitious students and recent graduates with a high degree of self-initiative to make a real impact in the EdTech industry.
Take ownership right from the start and shape our newly established "IU Venture Scholarship" - a scholarship for entrepreneurs deciding to start their entrepreneurial career risk-free at the IU.
As our applicants' and founders' go-to person you will have plenty of opportunities to meet founders and analyse their business ideas. You will be responsible for the application process and the initial screening of potential scholarship participants. You will work in close collaboration with our Senior Manager Finance & Strategy to prepare the sessions with our IU Venture Committee consisting of our C-Level, serial investors, top tier consulting firm alumni and innovation & entrepreneurship professors.
In addition, you will support our Senior Manager Finance & Strategy in other projects related to our new internal ventures (e.g., by building business plans, developing pricing strategies and analysing product economics) and gain insights into the operations at the pioneer of digital education.
If you convince us during your internship, you also have the opportunity to start an attractive career in a rapidly expanding entrepreneurial environment.
