We are looking to bring on an intern this summer in our London office. As an intern, you’ll help us identify and develop new investment roadmaps, conduct due diligence on potential investments and most importantly, find and connect with CEOs of emerging technology startups. Interns are full-fledged members of our investment team – you’ll attend our partnership meetings and be counted on to provide insights and feedback as we meet new companies.
Ideal candidates for this role will:
· Have an outstanding academic track record and interest in technology and innovation.
· Be enthusiastic about talking to tech companies and able to effectively represent Bessemer.
· Be highly self-motivated and able to succeed in an entrepreneurial environment.
Benefits of the Program
As a Bessemer intern, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with hundreds of entrepreneurs and support our investment roadmap process in Europe. Over time, you will develop a deeper understanding of how technology markets function and what makes tech businesses successful — critical foundations for a career as an investor or entrepreneur. The environment is highly entrepreneurial, giving you full rein over how to spend your time. Bessemer is a flat organization – everyone works directly with partners and attends the firm’s weekly partnership meetings. Bessemer Alumni have gone on to take senior roles at Bessemer, attend business school at Harvard, Stanford, and Wharton, join other firms like Norwest and Blackstone, start funds like Lead Edge, and found or join startups like Procore.
With $7 billion under active management, Bessemer Venture Partners is the oldest venture capital firm in the US and has offices in Silicon Valley, Boston, New York, Bangalore, London, and Israel. Bessemer has backed groundbreaking businesses including Pinterest, LinkedIn, Yelp, Box, Skype, Twitch, Twilio, Shopify, Fiverr and many others. For more information, check out www.bvp.com.
