From our home at KIT – the Royal Tropical Institute – we (normally) welcome 10,000 guests, host more than 250 impact events and accelerate more than 150 enterprises each year. Since 2008, we’ve helped more than a thousand entrepreneurs to start, grow and scale their impact business.
With multiple incubators or accelerators each year there is always something to do. You will support the acceleration team in coordinating the trainings and events that make up the programs. Amongst other things we have to make sure that the participants are onboarded into our community, that the entrepreneurs are matched to a mentor, that the program materials are designed, the website is up-to-date, and that the trainers are ready for their sessions. Also it could be that you will get the chance to co-facilitate a regular training day or do some additional research on a topic we’re working on in one of our ecosystems like food or fashion. In this way you get a chance to work with the entrepreneurs directly and be part of their development trajectory.We offer opportunities to develop your own ideas and research or train your skills, for example in content creation or event management.
You will get a workspace in our office, but depending on the Covid measures you need to be able to work from home as well. Naturally, we will offer you an appropriate internship allowance.
If you want to change the status quo and business as usual, join our unique impact ecosystem and get on board.
Please send your motivation letter and CV with the subject; Program support internship before 14 February 2020. The interviews are on Thursday 18 February, so keep this day free for a while.
Hear what Thijs (previous intern) has to say:
“Last week I finished my internship at the Impact Hub Amsterdam, as part of my thesis-research on circular startups. Such an inspiring time where I got to engage with a diverse community of social entrepreneurs working on creating impact.
During my time with the Programs team I got to see all the ins- and outs of working with startups and supporting them in their growth; both early stage social & plastics entrepreneurs as well as investment ready circular solutions.
From a beach office in Texel, to the Port of Amsterdam, to captivating pitch finals in front of impact investors, it was immensely inspiring to see and speak with all these dedicated people working together on creating a better planet through entrepreneurial action.
Special thanks to Manon Klein and the rest of the team for giving me this awesome opportunity to learn more about the world of social entrepreneurship and what you do for creating an impact ecosystem at the Impact Hub!”
