Global Ventures is an international venture capital firm that invests in global-mindset, growth-stage companies, focused on enterprise technology across the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. Our vision is to back the highest potential companies in the region, as a trusted partner to entrepreneurs as they seek to achieve scale and success.

Our dynamic team has been built on the core values of excellence, diversity and inclusiveness - “everyone’s voice counts”- and yours can too. We are looking for curious, adaptable self-starters to join us for a remote internship for 8 weeks in Summer
2021.

Last year’s program included 23 interns of 12 nationalities based across 14 cities, from 20+ universities including: Yale, HBS, MIT, Wharton, INSEAD, NYU and more.

Global Ventures is a fast-paced and constantly changing environment, which promises an immersive introduction to the world of venture capital. A good fit will find reward in an unstructured environment where individuals own their actions and have
outsized impact.

Mouchawer (Souq), amongst others.

As this is a virtual internship, all candidates will be required to have access to a laptop and internet connection to take part in the program. Weekly engagement and collaboration will take place using remote working tools such as Slack, Zoom and Notion amongst others. Please note that as majority of the team is based in the UAE, working hours will fall within this time zone.
