Description

Agora Partnerships’ purpose is to accelerate the shift to a sustainable economy by unlocking the potential of entrepreneurs who are building purpose-driven companies that create social and environmental impact throughout Latin America. Agora accomplishes this through its flagship initiative, the Accelerator, a 4-month program designed to provide entrepreneurs with access to the knowledge, networks, and capital they need to succeed. Since 2011, Agora has worked with 125 Latin American companies, helped secure approximately $46.1MM in capital for Accelerator participants, and achieved a survival rate of 89 percent among participating companies.

The Partnerships Intern will serve as an integral member of Agora’s DC-based team during an exciting period of rapid growth. The Intern will play a key role in researching collaboration opportunities, crafting tailored messaging, and supporting outreach to specific stakeholder groups interested in social entrepreneurs and impact investing. The Intern will be based in Agora’s downtown Washington, D.C. office and will report directly to Agora’s Director of Partnerships.
