INTERN AT SULTAN VENTURES
An Educational Program
Sultan Ventures is a boutique venture firm focusing on early-stage startups and investments. We provide pivotal resources via our powerful network of experts and investors, while providing the hands-on expertise necessary to accelerate growth.
Over the years we’ve expanded our team to meet our mission of catalyzing startup growth in Hawaii and startup hubs across the country. Sultan Ventures has successfully raised over 17 million dollars in the Hawaii startup community since inception.
Our team manages two Hawaii-based funds, both affiliated with the University of Hawaii: The Upside Fund, which invests in UH Intellectual property startups, and XLR8UH, an award-winning Venture Accelerator focused on empowering the University of Hawaii’s entrepreneurs including students, faculty, alumni, and those interested in helping commercialize UH technologies.
ABOUT OUR INTERNSHIPS
Intern positions are available immediately and typically last 3-4 months. We are searching for interns who can devote 10-20 hours per week. We are flexible with schedules but interns may not work remotely. Our primary goal for our interns is education. Our aim is to encourage entrepreneurship in Hawaii and buffer the ecosystem that supports it. We hope our interns gain practical skills and real-world knowledge they can apply in the industries they’re interested in.
Because the primary purpose of this internship is education, it is unpaid. However, unpaid internships have often led to compensated positions. Further, experience in the venture capital industry is rare and invaluable. The experience you’ll receive through our internships will be applicable to a variety of industries.
Regardless of specialty, all interns will likely have opportunities to:
- Perform due diligence research on potential portfolio companies
- Design and execute marketing plans
- Attend business related events and conferences
- Observe applicant company pitches
