Anthos Capital - Santa Monica, LA
Posted 7 months ago Apply Now!
Who Were Looking For: Full-time summer interns with an instinctual knack for cutting through the noise to identify up and coming companies, especially those focused on gaming, esports, and social platforms. The Summer 2020 internship is for Juniors/Rising Seniors, is 10 weeks, paid and is on-site in our LA office. For successful interns, we will extend the opportunity to continue on as full-time analysts following graduation.
What Youll Accomplish: Following a full week of extensive training, you will have the opportunity to identify exciting and high growth companies across a range of verticals and represent Anthos in our outreach to and conversations with CEOs. Anthos' investment team will help you analyze the opportunities you surface, work through hundreds of companies to help you understand what makes for an extraordinary investment, and hone your ability to analyze growth-stage businesses.
This is not a typical internship. After training, interns will have responsibilities and autonomy akin to that of a full-time analyst. You will play an integral role in Anthoss investment process and will have opportunities to interact with the entire investment team.
Ideal Candidates: Theres no right set of experiences for this job. Great candidates might be studying gaming, art, science, media, marketing, engineering, or anything in between. We care about ability and energy, not your major. Were interested in meeting a broad set of students from a multitude of backgrounds, people who arent afraid to think differently, learn fast, and try hard.

What is venture capital? Venture Capital (VC) firms invest money in exchange for equity (ownership) in businesses that are deemed to have high growth potential. The biggest challenge in VC is finding the right companies to invest in before they take off (thats where you come in!). Prior finance experience is not necessary to excel in this job.
