White Star Capital is Looking for a Fall Intern (September — December) in Canada

White Star Capital is a global multi-stage technology investment platform that invests in exceptional entrepreneurs building ambitious, international businesses. Operating out of Montreal, Toronto, New York, London, Paris, Tokyo, and Hong Kong, our presence, perspective, and people enable us to partner closely with founders to help them scale internationally from Series A onwards.

About the role:

The Canada Investment Team is looking for a Fall Intern (September — December 2022) to work with us on sourcing, sector research, due diligence, investment decision making, and support our new data and technology platform. This will be a paid 4 to 6 months engagement.

This is an exciting time for White Star Capital as we develop a new data and technology team. We’re looking for candidates who demonstrate skills in data handling and analytics and want to have exposure to the development of our new analytics division.

As part of the work, you will be involved in projects related to Portfolio Management as well as Investor Relations. The tasks may include data migration to new platforms, development of pipelines between tools, and data collection and report building for our portfolio companies.

As we are in the early stages of building this team, you will have the opportunity to go about your tasks in the best way you see fit and pursue projects that interest you alongside your other day-to-day activities. Note that this platform within a firm is also new for the world of Venture Capital, so you will have exposure to being at the front line of new and exciting opportunities.

What you will be responsible for:

● Support with the management of our internal data stack and perform analysis of our data

● Create data visualizations and build reports based on insights gained from analysis

● Source early-stage, Series A and Series B investment opportunities in Canada

● Directly work with the Investment Team on transactions by conducting due diligence and investment analysis on potential investments

● Help the investment team assist portfolio companies in terms of data tracking, strategic decisions or market mapping

● Build thought leadership around specific White Star Capital focus areas (i.e. digital health, fintech, enterprise SaaS, consumer, mobility, industrial tech)

● Attend virtual demo day / startup & VC related events on behalf of White Star Capital

● Collaborate with White Star capital team members across offices in North America, Europe and Asia

Who we are looking for:

● Has a passion for venture capital, entrepreneurship, and analytics

● High level of intellectual curiosity and self-starter mindset

● Minimum of 3 months experience in software engineering/data science roles and/or consulting, finance. Both undergraduate and graduate candidates are welcome to apply

● Demonstrable skills in programming languages such as Python or R for analysis — we’re not looking for expert levels, but more so if you can read and repurpose chunks of code. If you can manipulate data to create charts that’s a plus.

● Strong Excel and PowerPoint skills.

● Able to commit to at least 4 days per week for 4 to 6 months, be based in Toronto and available to come to the office 2 to 3 days a week.

● Collaborative, communicative, and able and willing to work remotely

● Demonstrated domain expertise in a particular sector or space welcome (but not required)

Application deadline: August 11, 2022, but reviewed on a rolling basis
