our goal of trained individuals

I started Growth Hacking Internship to solve my own bottleneck as Head of Growth at early-stage venture capital firm: to get people to perform systematic test-iteration for early-stage startups.

After training 100 people in 2 years with incredible hire rate of 92%, this program has proven to be excellent model to train and employ immigrant women in tech and also add diversity to often male-dominant tech companies.

Growth Hacking Internship is now available as Herizon's signature internship program. For her, everywhere.

The program focuses on learning and maintaining the growth hacking process in weekly sprints and solving the bottlenecks of startups firsthand in a collaborative learning environment of a Slack community of 100+ internship alumni and other professionals, 30+ Vimeo recordings and a biweekly growth hacking session with Mari.

Interns will get an environment to maximize their learning curve by working with a plethora of global startups.

Hunger to learn the skills to maintain a process and organize oneself effectively are the only requirements. Other interns and a community of alumni and specialists are available for your support.

A career in a startup is very likely after the program.

Applications are qualified.

Interns: no particular experience is expected, but certain motivation factors are screened.

Companies: financially stabile to pay for the internship, motivation to hire the intern full-time if both agree and understanding that they're dealing with an intern who is learning news skills (expectation management).

A lightweight interview between a company and an intern where they agree on possible start.

If both parties feel to proceed, they sign a contract of 2 months internship with a 1200 eur monthly salary.

Proactivity is a mandatory. Intern doesn't get direct answers but they get help to solve a problem themselves.
