Job Description

We are looking for an ambitious, mission-driven Intern with an entrepreneurial mindset. As an intern you will be working closely with the partner of the fund and the founders of our portfolio companies.

About us Swiss Founders Fund: SFF is a Swiss seed and early-stage venture capital fund who builds and invests in startups with passionate, entrepreneurial founders. We’ve founded and scaled successful companies ourselves, and we know that creating meaningful startups is difficult. Many entrepreneurs toil with ideas for years. Many spend time building something without the foresight of limiting factors that could have been easily dismissed upfront. Accomplished execs often teeter between a desire to start a company and creating something great versus taking a job that is less fulfilling. If only someone could help with taking the risk out of turning an idea into reality and accelerate the company building process, more people would be inspired to start a company. Coming up with great ideas, sussing them out, assembling great teams, and helping raise capital is what we do. We shorten a process that can take years down to months. We make sure founders are going after the right market, are fully validated, and are surrounded by great teammates. But we also know that the process is not about us. It’s about great Founders and empowering them to do great things.
