Fast-growth startups are always looking for high-quality talent. It’s without a doubt the single-most important ingredient to a company’s success. At Seedcamp, we work hard to help our portfolio fill out their team with the relevant skill sets and expertise. One way of doing this is a programme we started with the London Business School back in 2014. Today, the Seedcamp LBS Internship Programme matches students with Seedcamp portfolio companies, helping students apply their classroom knowledge to real-world problems and giving companies access to high-quality talent from one of the world’s leading business schools.
This year, we were thrilled to have matched 13 students with ten Seedcamp portfolio companies based in all corners of Europe (the benefits of a remote world). Two of these students are second-year Gene Barrett and first-year Nina Cardelus. We asked both to share what a typical day at their, albeit virtual, offices look like.
