Anthos Capital: Venture Capital/ Growth Equity Summer Internship
Anthos Capital is a generalist venture capital firm, and has worked with category-leading companies in areas including including software, consumer-internet, and mobile gaming. Their partners have founded, led and held senior roles in companies like Lululemon, Facebook, SnapChat, Starbucks and Under Armour.
What is venture capital? Venture Capital (VC) firms invest money in exchange for equity (ownership) in businesses that are deemed to have high growth potential. The biggest challenge in VC is finding the right companies to invest in before they take off (that’s where you come in!). Prior finance experience is not necessary to excel in this job.
Who We’re Looking For: Full-time summer interns to work directly with our investors to help source deals and evaluate potential investments. The Summer 2019 internship is for Juniors/Rising Seniors, is 8 weeks, paid and is on-site in our LA office. For successful interns, we will extend the opportunity to continue on as full-time analysts following graduation.
What You’ll Accomplish: Following training, you will have the opportunity to source investments and represent Anthos in our outreach to emerging company CEOs. Anthos' investment team will help you analyze the opportunities you surface, work through hundreds of companies to help you understand what makes for an extraordinary investment, and hone your ability to analyze growth-stage businesses.
Ideal Candidates: There’s no “right” set of experiences for this job. Great candidates might be studying psychology, art, science, media, marketing, engineering, or anything in between. We care about ability and energy, not your major. We’re interested in meeting a broad set of students from a multitude of backgrounds, people who aren’t afraid to think differently, learn fast, and try hard.
To Apply: Visit tinyurl.com/SWIB19 to submit your application. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until March 17, 2019. We encourage interested candidates to apply in a timely manner, as spots are often filled before the application deadline.
