Please send in your application by September 24th; the application form link is here.

As our Venture Client intern, you'll get a front-seat view of what it's like to work in the epicenter of where world-class startups and industry-leading corporations meet. You will have the chance to get as hands-on as you like in your work with one or more of the Foundry companies: Stora Enso, KONE, Scania, Autoliv, Atlas Copco, SKF, Munters, Epiroc, Husqvarna Group, or Fazer! More concretely, this means you have the chance to learn the following:

  2. What makes the best-in-class industrial startups stand out from the crowd

  3. What industry-leading companies are looking to solve now and in the future 

  4. How large companies and startups work together to, among other things, decrease the time-to-market of new technologies

You will be responsible for designing and executing startup market analysis, analyzing startup deal flow, synthesizing startup scouting results, and participating in internal business development initiatives.

We welcome brilliant individuals with varying educational backgrounds, hunger to learn fast, and capability of stellar execution. Here's what we value important:

  • We value a proactive problem-solving mindset, a sense of ownership, and an entrepreneurial drive to get things done

  • In our daily work, we appreciate an optimistic attitude with a mind for deep analysis

We value a healthy work-life balance, so regarding your life outside working hours, we ensure you have time to take care of the things that are important. You might even find a colleague sharing the same passion or get to teach us something new.

This internship is from January to May 2024 or August to December 2024. You can work full-time or part-time (minimum of 60%) with flexible working hours. Our Helsinki office is located at Bulevardi 44, next to Sinebrychoff Park.
