Job Description

We're looking for Student Venture Scouts at underrepresented colleges across the United States.

When student founders are ready to raise seed capital for their ideas and side projects, their access to opportunity varies greatly based on where they go to school. Our scouts find these "undercover" entrepreneurs, validate their ideas, help them craft their pitch, and connect them with investors in our partner network.

The most important factors we're looking for in our scouts is the ability to build. What this means in practice is largely up to you; you might have built a company, an organization, a non-profit, a community, or an open-source project. What it is matters less to us than your demonstrated ability to innovate.

We hope to offer talented undergrads an unparalleled window into the venture capital sourcing and decision-making process. We're young too, and admittedly this is all a bit of a grand experiment. If that's something you'd like to be a part of, we'd love to have you as a part of our team.

Things to Remember
Always be on the alert for potentially fraudulent job postings online. Report potential fraud to us if you're unsure about the legitimacy of a job posting or employer on Covintern.
  • Never accept a check or other funds from a company to purchase materials necessary for your position.
  • Avoid and report situations where employers require payment or work without compensation as part of the application process.
  • Avoid corresponding with anyone who reaches out via text or email or outside of the Covintern platform that you don't recognize.
  • Be wary of Google Hangout or Skype interviews as these are not publicly-listed numbers that can be used to verify the legitimacy of the interviewer.
