About

VC101 facilitates investment firms to outsource jobs in two ways:

1. Your firm does not currently offer student roles but is looking to test drive an internship programme or run a diversity initiative.
2. You already have interns and are looking for something better to hire for specific roles.

Who is this for?

Startups have gone mainstream. Along with this, the role of VCs has become highly popularised. Career savvy individuals are constantly looking for opportunities to break into the world of Venture Capital.

VC firms are becoming inundated with requests to intern from university students, founders or aspiring VCs.

If this sounds like you, you can now seamlessly test drive a VC101 Investor Internship at your firm.

How Does it Work?

Firms can offer student roles to trial a cost-effective internship programme or offer a diversity initiative at their firm.
