Unique Opportunity with two leading early stage technology venture capital firms

Tadpole Ventures and Consumer Equity Partners, two leading early stage technology venture capital firms (Silicon Valley, CA and Seattle, WA) are seeking between 3-5 qualified and interested students to help support business meeting and logistic activities for the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas (Jan 6-9th, 2015). Airfare, hotel, meals and incidental related expenses will be provided. This opportunity is being sponsored by two Babson alumni (David H. Park, BS ’91 Entrepreneurial Studies and Jeff Fritz, MBA ’11).

This is a unique opportunity to learn from experienced entrepreneurs and business owners. You will be part of a team helping facilitate movement and meetings for the venture capitalists, members of their portfolio companies and key senior executives from top global companies that they are meeting with. A rotation of one staff member per meeting team (VCs + companies) will be arranged for supporting on-site support (exhibit show access badges will be provided). As available, free time will be built into the schedule to allow the student interns to see, hear and experience CES 2015 on their own (when not on schedule/working).

This is a great chance to meet & work with 2 Babson alumni and also a chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs.  Not to mention a trip to Vegas!

Last year, 2 Babson ’14 grads were selected to participate in this internship opportunity – Tommy Drummy ’14 and Kent Wiederecht ‘14.  Read the statement below from Tommy Drummy about his experience.

2014 CES Experience

In one word, the internship was unforgettable. The week Kent Wiederecht and I spent with David Park and Jeff Fritz provided an experience that no other internship could offer. This one of a kind opportunity gave Kent and I a first-hand look at how to analyze new technology, develop market research skills, and connect with Babson alumni. Kent and I both had a truly amazing experience last year and highly recommend taking advantage of this unbelievable learning opportunity! –Tommy Drummy ‘14
