International Business Internship (German speaking)
De Nieuwe Gevers is a new kind of movement. We are a community of thousands of professionals that want to make the world a better place. With our platform we enable professionals to donate their skills to charities. As a fast growing social Tech Startup, we're on a mission to create the biggest do-good community of Europe! Will you help make our first steps in Germany?
Explore Germany, startup style ✨
Ever wondered what it is like to start your own startup? This will get pretty close. Together with the founders of our company you will explore a new market, Germany 🇩🇪!! From the ground up! From talking with potential customers to validating critical business assumptions. You'll work closely with our design team to localize our German platform and get the responsibility to launch specific tests to learn more about the market. In other words: hands-on research/startup exploration of expanding our social startup denieuwegevers.nl into Germany.
What you're gonna do! 💪
- Strategize directly with our management team about our local roll-out.
- Help validate our most important business assumptions.
- Talk with potential customers (charities and social enterprises) and validate our value proposition.
- Setup (together with our design team) the first local version of our platform.
- Research potential volunteers and learn from their needs, pain points, etc.
In short, a lot to do. Lots of responsibility. You can try new things. Discover what you like. Make mistakes. And most important, learn from it.
