VC Intern

Runa Capital

Runa Capital

London, UK
Posted on Friday, May 17, 2024

We look for a self-driven, curious and fast-learning person who will join our team in London as an Intern. It’s a great opportunity for those sharing our passion for the tech industry and willing to break into the VC world.

Runa Capital

Our best early-stage bets turned into companies such as Mambu ($5.5B last round valuation), Zopa ($1B), Nginx ($0.7B, exit), Ecwid ($0.5B, exit), Pasqal and Brainly. Since the foundation in 2010, we have invested in 100+ startups, completed 30+ exits, and learned a bit about VC & startups 🙂

We are open-minded, entrepreneurial, and tech-savvy. Runa’s co-founders have built a few global tech companies (Acronis, Parallels, Acumatica, etc.), and inside Runa, we love to build tech-based things too. For instance, our team created its own data platform, a popular repo (14K+ Github stars), and publishes an index of open-source startups.

Runa attracts self-driven people and provides them with learning opportunities, relevant resources, and a high level of freedom. Such an approach bears spectacular fruit: three of Runa’s former associates became its General Partners (Dmitry, Konstantin, Michael), two are Partners at other VC funds in London (Atomico, Begin Capital), and two founded their own VC firms in Silicon Valley (1confirmation, Day One Ventures).

We regularly meet in person in Europe but our international team is spread between Palo Alto, New York, London, Paris, Barcelona, Luxembourg, Berlin, Sofia and Singapore. Our UK team usually work from the office located in the heart of London (Huckletree Oxford Circus).
