Vinetta Project is looking for two interns to join its team this fall.

The organization manages an annual challenge with chapters across the U.S. that welcome women founders to the pitch stage for a chance to win $20,000. Vinetta has four focus areas for its programming and services: financial, intellectual, social and personal capital. The organization will welcome a marketing intern and an operations intern for fall 2020.

Interns will be expected to work part time — approximately 15 to 20 hours a week — during their fall semester of school and will be given opportunities to lead operational projects. They will gain exposure to Vinetta’s corporate and community partners, prepare and attend founder and investor events and assist with ongoing projects across the organization’s D.C., New York and international markets. Selected interns will be compensated with between one to three college credits.

Those interested in applying should send a cover letter and resume to the organization and state which position they’re interested in. The deadline to apply is Friday, Sept. 4, at 5 p.m. You can find more information about Vinetta’s internship program here.

(Shameless plug: Check out our inaugural episode of DC Diaries, our new personality-centric interview series, in which we spoke with Vinetta Project DC Director Dawn Myers to kick it off.)

Also, Vinetta’s final Venture Challenge event in D.C. is taking place virtually on Sept. 8. Four women entrepreneurs will hit the virtual pitch stage to vie for a $20,000 cash prize.
