VC Internship @ Overton Venture Capital in Remote

Overton Venture Capital (www.overtonvc.com) is an early stage venture capital firm that invests in ambitious, consumer-focused entrepreneurs who are building exceptional next-generation brands and services. We have a pulse on the evolving consumer behavior and, as such we, invest in next generation consumer brands & services at the intersection of commerce & digital influence.  We act not only as investors, but as partners, bringing our significant talent and operational capabilities to help our portfolio companies grow.   

Opportunity

Overton is hiring a Platform intern to begin immediately. The intern will primarily be responsible for leading Overton’s brand and marketing efforts, with opportunity for exposure to venture investing. If successful, the intern could transition to a hybrid role after August and take on investment responsibilities (sourcing/strategy & evaluating investment opportunities) in addition to the platform work. This is a great opportunity for someone with a marketing, branding or journalism background looking to transition to alternative investments.

The Platform Intern will be responsible for building out content focused on Overton and our portfolio companies. This could include producing content for newsletters, helping organize virtual events with industry experts and entrepreneurs, building out the firm’s social media presence, and long-form writing. There are opportunities to interface with our portfolio company teams, attend industry events, and learn about the investment and operating side of venture capital. 

Candidates should have a strong interest in learning about the venture capital industry and a passion for entrepreneurship and working with early-stage companies. This is a small team where interns will have the opportunity to own workflows and have an outsized impact. A stipend will be awarded upon completion of the internship.

Responsibilities 

  • Create and curate content for brand marketing efforts to increase Overton’s presence in various forms of media

  • Lead preparation of weekly or bi-weekly newsletters for VC and startup community

  • Perform industry/sector and company analyses

  • Meet with management teams, industry experts and internal advisers to help source and screen new investment opportunities

About You

  • Prior relevant experience is a requirement, and prior venture capital experience (at a firm or venture-backed start-up) is a plus. Experience level of 3+ years preferred.

  • An expert interviewer and storyteller, with the ability to ask insightful questions and turn an interview into a compelling story
