We are recruiting an intern for the 2017 spring semester to drive research into new investment strategies and content creation. You will be tasked with studying new investment areas in enterprise software, driving internal investment research, and creating content for external thought leadership. As an example, our 10 Laws of Cloud Computing is one of the most widely read software white papers (https://bvp.box.com/10lawsofcloudcomputing) and we would like to develop more content in this vein. The role will be a semester-long commitment based in our San Francisco office. You will be expected to work one day per week in San Francisco and remotely when convenient.
