Marketing Intern for Startup Accelerator


The Founder Institute (FI) is the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator. We’ve helped launch over 4,000 companies in 180+ cities globally, that have raised in total over $800M of funding (portfolio valuation $30B). 

We’re looking for a Marketing Intern with a love for startups to join our team (and ideally transition into a FT role). We are based in Silicon Valley and have additional offices in Colorado and Sofia, Bulgaria. Our success has been documented in the New York TimesBusinessWeekForbesTechCrunch, and many more.

You will have the opportunity to see entrepreneurship, angel investing, and venture capital from every angle, attend Founder Institute sessions with top entrepreneurs, and more.

The ideal candidate can thrive in a fast-moving, exciting startup environment, and is interested in building a career through this opportunity (not just filling a summer internship or academic requirement). You will NOT be making coffee or copies in this internship, but rather you will fully join our marketing team and tackle projects like:

  • Designing and executing marketing campaigns to drive global awareness.
  • Securing promotion across the globe through marketing partnerships, media, and more.
  • Conducting market research in new and existing global locations.
  • Assisting in social media and content marketing initiatives.
  • And much more (we are a small and lean team, so everybody has the opportunity to work on a wide range of projects)

This position requires that you work out of our office in Palo Alto, CA. 

IMPORTANT: In your Cover Letter, please write one paragraph on why you are passionate about the startup community, and one paragraph about the types of projects you think you could excel at during an internship at the Founder Institute. Resumes without a proper Cover Letter will be ignored.

COMPENSATION: Commensurate with experience.
