Everyone starts somewhere. An internship at AVG can be a great beginning for an undergrad exploring a career in entrepreneurship or venture capital. You work directly with an AVG professional on various entry-level projects and are immersed in the day-to-day office environment of a highly active and rapidly growing venture firm.
AVG Intern, Summer 2016
“After my freshman year at Dartmouth, I had the opportunity to explore a potential VC career through a summer internship at AVG. Working with the firm was not only a great educational experience, but also an incredible opportunity to interact with the deal teams. This allowed me to rapidly gain insights into the VC industry. I helped coordinate alumni outreach—rapidly expanding my own network—as well as conduct research for due diligence. Further, I was invited to attend Investment Committee meetings, which helped me understand the questions to consider when talking to a startup. The internship was an invaluable experience that allowed me to build a flexible skillset and a substantial professional network—both immense helps in jumpstarting my career in the finance industry.”
Develop Key Skills
We only hire interns if we have actual work for them to complete. Most of our intern work is research based – exploring new technologies, researching companies or markets, and completing projects that help our organization grow.
Gain Unique Work Experience
Very few undergraduates get a chance to work at a venture capital firm, so an internship with AVG will help you stand out.
Build a Professional Network
Our alumni networks are among the largest and most connected in the entrepreneurial economy. Our internship is a perfect early job to start building your own network.
