JUMP Investors Summer Internship
JUMP Investors (www.jumpinvestors.com), a Los Angeles-based entrepreneurial venture capital investment firm, is looking for several incredibly talented, hard-working, passionate, creative, and highly motivated interns to work on a fun, travel-related portfolio company. The internship is NOT paid and requires students to receive school credit.
We are looking for interns with diverse skill sets who can contribute to the various projects related to one of JUMP's portfolio companies, a travel-related start-up.
This is a very unique opportunity to work closely with a well-known, successful, LA-based serial entrepreneur and investor – the CEO of JUMP is a co-founder of Akamai Technologies and his venture capital investments have included many exits through acquisition or IPO’s.
Interns will gain invaluable hands-on experience on how to build a startup, will gain exposure to multiple industries and industry leaders, and will engage in regular / almost daily interactions with our CEO as part of a rewarding learning and work experience.
As part of our summer intern program, we have an exciting guest speaker program through which entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and other well-known executives and industry leaders share their experiences with our interns. Our past guest speakers have included the CEO of Zappos, the founder and former CEO of The Honest Company, the VP of Technology at Snapchat, the Managing Partner and CIO of FPA Funds, the founder and former CEO of TrueCar, the Vice Chairman of Apollo Global Management, the former President of Relativity Media, the co-founder and President of Moelis & Company, the founder and Managing Partner of Arena Ventures, the CEO of ICM Partners, the founder and Managing Partner of Anthem Venture Partners, the President of Jukin Media, Metta World Peace of the Los Angeles Lakers, Anthony Barr of the Minnesota Vikings, and many others.
For the past 17 years, successful internships and mentees at our firm have resulted in full-time and internship employment opportunities at many portfolio and other companies including Accenture, Altamont Capital, Amazon, Bain, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, BCG, Citigroup, CollarCard, Goldman Sachs, Facebook, Google, Groupon, Houlihan Lokey, JP Morgan, JUMP Investors, Jet.com, Lazard, Morgan Stanley, Oliver Wyman, PayPal, Piper Jaffray, PWC, SteelHouse, UBS, Uptake, Visa, Vista Equity, and Wells Fargo.
Our best performing interns who are interested will earn a lifetime mentor – our CEO remains in regular contact with interns dating back 17 years.
