Join Point Nine for a summer internship!

We're looking for an intern – a great opportunity for a young, super-smart over-performer to get an inside view of an early-stage VC in Berlin. :-)

I'm reposting our job ad here:

We offer a three month paid internship, starting middle of April or beginning of May at our office in Berlin.

What you do:
  • Support evaluating the dealflow; give us your opinion on >100 business ideas and plans per month; find the one we should invest in.
  • Do networking; meet people and founders.
  • Screen new markets; find hidden champions; be faster than the rest.
  • Dig deep into topics; help with research; find answers for questions we have not asked yet. 
  • Help us run operations more efficiently.

What we offer:
  • Insights how a venture capital firm works.
  • Steep learning curve; small team; much responsibility if you can earn it.
  • Access to our network: our portfolio companies as well as Team Europe (Company Building), iPotentials (HR), Gruenderszene & Venture Village (media).
  • Berlin, the upcoming heart of the European StartUp industry. That is where you meet all the founders, evangelists, angels and influencers.
  • Enough time to enjoy life.

What we expect from you:
  • You are a digital native; you used facebook, before people heard about studiVZ; you check in with foursquare and take photos with instagram; maybe you even blog and twitter.
  • You are familiar with basics of the Internet infrastructure and have some understanding of key Internet based business models, like e-commerce, large networks, SaaS, etc.
  • You are curious; you have your own ideas; you want to see results.
  • We do not need to tell you what you have to do. You see the tasks, you do them, you surprise us.
  • You don’t need 9 to 5 working hours.
  • And the usual stuff: you have at least 4 semesters at your business school, preferable already a first degree. You have gained international experience, have done at least one internship before. You speak fluent English and hopefully German.
