Hiring a Summer Intern in NYC

There is an amazing paid internship opportunity for an undergraduate student in NYC.

The last three interns that I have hired are now working full-time at well known firms, specifically SV Angel, Andreessen Horowitz and LivePerson.

The ideal candidate who have this background:

  • Undergraduate student, either a current Junior or Senior, preferably a student with a business major
  • Student MUST be passionate about entrepreneurship/startup community
  • Student MUST be somewhat active in social media, Twitter/Tumblr/Blogging
  • Preferably a student from either NYU or Columbia
  • MUST be able to work at least 10 hours a week while in school, up to 40 hours per week during the summer
  • Previous work experience is a MUST
  • Start date is ASAP


  • Working with me and the early stage startup team at the Silicon Valley Bank NYC office
  • Attend various startup events
  • Work on various projects, typically ones that focus on VC funding data/trends
  • Update CRM system with client data
  • Full-time during the Summer, at least 10 hours/week while in school
  • Assuming there is an interest by both parties, the internship can lead to a full-time position upon graduation

If interested:

Please find a mutual connection and get an introduction, leverage LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.  With the introduction, please attach a resume AND a cover letter.

  1. As one of those former interns now working at a16z – I couldn’t possibly endorse this internship more if I tried. Working with Shai was an eye opening experience into the start-up world and ignited my passion for the space which ended up leading me to Andreessen Horowitz. Shai is an incredible mentor and boss who I am now lucky enough to call a friend. I hope the student who ends up in this role understands the true opportunity at their finger tips.
