VC Internship @ Inkitt in New York City, NY

Inkitt is the world’s first reader-powered book publisher. We have developed an algorithm that predicts bestsellers by analyzing reading behaviour.

Did you know that Harry Potter was rejected by 12 publishers and was only published because the 13th publisher’s 8-year-old daughter found the manuscript, read it, and liked it? Twilight was rejected by 14 publishers, Stephen King’s first book was rejected by 30 publishers, and James Patterson was rejected by 31 publishers. We asked ourselves: how many great and talented authors are there who must have given up after a few rejections and never had the chance to get published?

At Inkitt, we believe that every author should have an equal chance to succeed. That’s why we’re building the fairest and most objective publishing house in the world by finding hidden talents and turning them into globally successful authors.

We’re a team of 30 hard-working, extremely talented, and highly dedicated entrepreneurs and have raised $5m to level up and get closer to our goal: to help debut authors dominate the NY Times Best Seller list.

Are you ready to shake the publishing industry and revolutionize the way books are read and sold? We are seeking a dedicated Venture Development Intern to join the team.
