We invest from € 200k in companies within smart city, energy, proptech, e-mobility, IoT, ehealth etc. Our hands-on team of three founders has extensive international knowledge in finance, entrepreneurship, innovation & venture capital.

We provide access to infrastructure (co-working office space and technology), coaching and mentoring, as well as to our international network of successful business founders, established market players and leading investors. As SIVentures is a startup itself, there are limited pre-defined structures and processes so you will have a lot of flexibility and responsibility. Therefore, being a self-starter with a hands-on mentality is a must.

Your profile: 

  • Currently studying for a Science or Business Master degree
  • At least 1 year until your graduation
  • Leipzig based
  • Excellent academic track record
  • Hands-on-mentality!
  • Reliable self-starter
  • High level of commitment & motivation
  • Fluent in German and English (both written and oral)
  • Experiences in venture capital and/or entrepreneurship advantageous (either as part of your studies or through an internship)

We offer: 

  • A fun, creative & international working environment within the startup accelerator SpinLab
  • A small motivated team where you work directly with founders & receive direct feedback
  • Many opportunities to develop yourself and to broaden your skill set
  • A high level of responsibility and ambitious tasks within a strong team
  • After a starting phase onsite, we will offer flexible working time and partially remote work
