ING’s strategy is centred around providing a best in class experience to its customers, aiming to empower people to stay a step ahead in life and business. Innovation is considered to be a core enabler to accomplish this mission, especially given the fast changing environment we live in today, with the availability and fast speed development of new technologies and changing customer behaviours. Partnering with and investing in fintechs is core to our innovation activities as we see it as a way to accelerate the implementation of our strategy and increase business impact.
The role of an intern at ING Ventures is to support the team in finding fintechs that have the potential to disrupt our core business or that would create ‘beyond banking’ opportunities, i.e. new business models for the bank. An intern will support the Associates and Deal Principals in the origination and execution of new investments in fintechs, as well as in monitoring and evaluating our existing portfolio.
As an intern you will be treated as a full member of our team and you will be given the opportunity to gain practical work experience and develop your skillset. You will get external exposure to other ING departments, you will attend meetings and support with due diligence. Given the entrepreneurial angle of our team we are looking for proactive and professional individuals.
