We are looking for two outstanding interns ecstatic to dive headfirst into the world of venture capital.

Application Information

Firm Description

RevTech Ventures is a seed-stage venture capital fund dedicated to helping the retail industry adapt in the age of Amazon. We do this by attracting, funding, mentoring, and connecting top-tier retail and technology innovators with talent, customers, and investors. While constituting only about 5% of North American retail sales market share today, Amazon commands nearly half the sector’s R&D and innovation budget, leaving the other 95% playing catch up. We love helping our entrepreneurs catalyze growth in this industry for the other 95% – and have a lot of fun doing it!
