We are hiring a stellar intern to support one of Norrsken’s newest, and most exciting, initiatives: The Norrsken Impact/100.
The Impact/100, created in partnership with some of the world’s leading organizations within impact and venture capital, is the defining list of the world’s most promising impact startups.
You could say a lot about them, but it's basically this: 100 ideas that can change 1 billion lives.
We’re now looking for a top-tier intern to join our mission of spotlighting the world’s most inspiring and impactful young companies.
Help us find the world’s best impact startups: Conduct market research to find potentially revolutionary startups around the world (sector and geography agnostic).
Deep-dive into promising leads: Gather relevant information on the nominated startups into a database, help conduct due diligence and perform thorough analysis of which startups should make the Impact/100 list.
Ensure that we provide clear and concise information to stakeholders: Partake and support in presenting high-interest startups to the Steering Committee, as well as prepare material and memos on the final candidates.
