The Dreamit Internship Program
The Dreamit Find the Future Internship Program is an opportunity to gain first-hand experience with the day-to-day workings of a startup. If selected by one of the early-stage companies in Dreamit’s portfolio, you will work directly with the founders on key projects that are instrumental to the company’s success. Examples of past projects include:
Meeting with potential customers to gather early feedback
Conducting growth hacking experiments to drive customer acquisition
Building flexible financial models
Creating landing pages and mobile responsive websites
Launching PR campaigns to garner attention from customers, investors, and the media
Researching and building pipelines of potential customers
Hacking hardware and software solutions to technical problems
Dreamit startups are located around the world, and the expectation is that you will collaborate with them remotely via tools like Slack, Zoom, and Google Drive. These are unpaid opportunities, but interns receive invaluable exposure to the entrepreneurial ecosystem. All interns receive full access to Dreamit educational resources and are invited to participate in key events.

Find innovative solutions to overcome challenges with minimal coaching
Manage competing priorities and never miss a detail
Communicate effectively and work with teams remotely
Own a meaningful project that will directly contribute to the startup’s success

Here's what one recent intern had to say about the program:
The internship with DreamIt Ventures was arguably the most valuable experience I had during my two-year MBA program at the McCombs School of Business. Coming into business school, I knew I wanted to learn about early stage investing and DreamIt presented me with the best opportunity to do so. I had the opportunity to gain exposure to all facets of DreamIt's day to day operations, from conducting due diligence on various markets and portfolio companies, modeling new fund opportunities, and brainstorming original fundraising ideas. A very satisfying aspect of the internship, aside from the amount I learned, was the fact that my work was actually implemented, a rarity for internship-level work.
