Social impact startup CivicRise seeks Partnerships intern
CivicRise is an early-stage technology startup (founded by Tim Scales, Fuqua '17) that seeks to mobilize effective, sustained, and measurable civic engagement. The CivicRise action app allows users to subscribe to organizations such as the ACLU or Planned Parenthood and receive targeted action alerts that they can complete through the app. The Partnerships internship is focused on seeking and developing relationships with issue-advocacy organizations who would use the app to mobilize their supporters. This would include researching prospects, creating outreach materials, assisting with pitches and demos, and other marketing/bizdev activities that we come up with together. We are looking for an enthusiastic, entrepreneurial person who is excited about the unpredictability of a startup and eager to jump in and make a difference. A passion for social entrepreneurship and/or civic engagement is a huge plus. Impeccable communication skills, professionalism, and follow-through are a must. A willingness to do the unglamorous work as well as the fun stuff is required, because that's what we're all doing here. If this looks like a good fit, email Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org with a resume and a quick note saying one thing you could bring to this role plus one thing you'd hope to gain from this experience.
