This is an exciting externship where students can experience first-hand what it feels like to be part of a Fortune 100 company. As investors, venture capitalists (VCs) are investing in new ideas, innovations, and most importantly teams, where do they begin? This is called deal sourcing. Externs will profile startup companies, learn what VCs look for, and be a part of investing in the next generation of technology. HP Tech Ventures is seeking ambitious students to help research relevant pre-seed stage startups for deal sourcing and evaluation. This project includes special data analytics projects that allow students to practice using analysis tools to perform business model, strategy, and value chain analysis.

What you'll do:

Externs will help identify relevant start ups for deal sourcing and evaluation including:

  • Researching start up metrics, industry data, team, and business models
  • Determining product differentiation and strategy across startups
  • Constructing market maps across various startup sectors
  • Managing data using data cleaning methods and tools such as Open Refine
  • Calculating and analyzing data using Excel and SQL to find summary values and trends
  • Presenting and correlating the data using data visualization techniques include charts
  • Recommending attractive start ups for further investment due diligence
