VC Internship @ Nauta Capital in Berlin, Germany

Nauta Capital

Nauta Capital is a pan-European venture capital firm with more than €550 million under management and a portfolio of over 50 companies. We’re passionate about backing ambitious companies that share our vision to create global disruptors in large spaces, where technology has had a limited impact.

We have teams in London, Barcelona, and Berlin, and we invest in early-stage software companies with a single global thesis. We have backed technology disruptors such as Onna, Brandwatch, holded, Zephr, and zenloop amongst others.

We are looking for an Investment Analyst Intern (full time) to join our Berlin team starting June / July 2023 for a period of 6 months.

From day one, we offer high and direct exposure to the wide scope of tasks that venture capital offers. You will be involved in all the relevant aspects of investment management work. Furthermore, working for Nauta Capital will provide you with the unique opportunity to gain in-depth insights into innovative, young, and high-growth companies.

An important note on diversity: We strongly believe that diverse backgrounds and life experiences within our team are key to being a successful VC firm. In an ever-changing technology world we need to bring as many different perspectives as possible into our decisions. To achieve this, we are actively looking to increase the diversity of our team in all dimensions.

At Nauta, we are committed to creating a diverse environment where talented people from multiple backgrounds want to come and do their best work. We are proud of our group of 20+ talented professionals from several nationalities and multiple backgrounds. We have neuroscientists, economists, computer scientists, physicists and mathematicians in our team but we feel that we can still improve our diversity footprint. We particularly encourage applications from groups underrepresented throughout the Venture Capital industry.
