Seedstars Internship program

Porto, Porto District, Portugal Full-time Allows remote

Who we are

Seedstars is a global organization with headquarter in Switzerland and a presence in 60+ emerging markets. We are on a mission to impact people’s lives in emerging markets through technology and entrepreneurship. Our initiatives are focused on connecting stakeholders within these ecosystems, building tech companies from scratch and investing in the top entrepreneurs.

About the internship

It’s very important to us that the candidates share our conviction of bootstrapping and love of the web/tech world, you should have an intuitive feel for what works and what doesn’t online! 

Your main responsibilities

  • Survey, report and research into successful emerging market entrepreneurs
  • Data driven and technical blog posts on various topics
  • Working on the Seedstars Index, analysing the state of ecosystem development of emerging markets worldwide and preparing the final global report
  • Working with the Growth Program team on analysing the existing startup dealflow and prioritising the startups based on their investment readiness
  • Startup sourcing and evaluation
  • Acting as the website support for the regional teams, making sure the information displayed on the local event pages is up-to-date
  • Preparing design elements for the individual local events
  • Preparing the content of the presentations delivered at the local events
  • Defining the content for workshops and bootcamp, finding speakers/panelists, and assisting with the logistics and media infrastructure
  • Managing supplier relationships and administrative functions to ensure local events are delivered efficiently.


Your profile

  • Previous relevant experience with the startup ecosystem is a MUST
  • Flexibility & International exposure - This job only makes sense for someone who is passionate about traveling and excited to go somewhere completely new, often on very little notice & with a couch surfer attitude
  • Excellent organisational skills and attention to details (at the question "please describe who you are in a tweet" start your answer with the word "kiskil")
  • Strong belief in getting things done - We are nomads traveling around the world so it is important to have drive, ownership and execution. Working in remote with an international team, you have to be comfortable working alone and capable to prioritize and make things happen


Benefits and perks

  • Build your network in emerging markets of tech entrepreneurs and investors
  • Join a young, passionate, hungry and growing team of entrepreneurs & facilitators
  • Internship fee
