About Lendorse:
Are you passionate about financial inclusion and social impact? Meet Lendorse, a dynamic and innovative Fintech/Edtech startup that is breaking down barriers to education for talented students from developing countries. At Lendorse, we believe that everyone deserves access to quality education, regardless of their financial background. That's why we offer Income Share Agreements (ISAs) and mentoring to help students achieve their dreams without the burden of debt.
Here's how it works:
The students fund their current studies through their future salary, via an Income Share Agreement. Lendorse provides a lump sum to cover their tuition fees, living expenses, and visa deposits. In return, they share a fixed portion of their future income with us for a fixed period of time. The best part is - they don't start repaying until they meet a certain income threshold!
We recognize that students need more than just finance to be set up for success. We give them tools such as CV optimization, insights into different industries, tangible tips on getting a ‘foot in the door’, and more exclusive mentoring & career support.
We’re looking for a proactive BizDev & Lead Generation Intern to help us run focus groups with university alumni, liaise with universities and design other qualitative / quantitative methods to collect primary data about students & more.
As a Data & Lead Generation Intern at Lendorse, you will be responsible for:
Helping identify the biggest areas of research that will affect our business model
Hosting focus groups with university alumni to understand their employment journeys, industries of work and salaries - according to different demographics and university experiences
Liaising with universities to gather data about their graduate employment rates, industries of work and salaries
Collaborating with our secondary-data research intern to decide how to best collect data together
Finding top quality universities, education providers, admission consultants, recruitment programs + more in Germany to approach for partnerships
Our successful candidate will ideally fit this profile:
Either enrolled in or have just completed a Master’s degree in either Economics, Business or something similar
Great communication and interpersonal skills, both in English and German
A high-energy ambassador for our brand
The ability to make & manage relationships with high-level stakeholders
Proactive, proactive, proactive!
You have a passion for education and share our belief that wasted educational potential is one of the greatest tragedies of our time
What's in it for you?
Joining a fun, hardworking and high-energy team
Sessions with our founding team to help you plan your next career move: CEO (ex-McKinsey) and COO (ex-Investment Banker)
Shadow meetings with senior management team when discussing partnerships
Direct contact with high-level stakeholders who you could add to your own network
Experience in a fast-paced startup where your work has a direct impact
Ability to explore different areas of a startup
A written reference from our CEO upon satisfactory completion of the internship
Logistics:
This is an unpaid internship from June - August.
You can work remotely
We operate with CET hours. We will of course accomodate other time zones and your work schedule can be quite flexible. We ask for some availability per day in our time zone cross-over hours.
This is a full-time commitment
If this sounds exciting, we'd love to speak to you! Join us in our mission to empower the next generation of leaders and make a real difference in the world. Visit our website at www.lendorse.com to learn more.
