Finance Intern for Winter 2015Bookmark This
1990 So. Bundy Drive
Los Angeles, CA
DescriptionGreetings from THE LATEST (thelatest.com).
Heard the latest?
We are a soon-to-launch website called "THE LATEST." We have an international team that is continually growing.
As part of our offering, we will produce webisodes in which we discuss "the latest" in news, sports, gadgets, gossip, wine, fly fishing, comedy, viral videos, the weather, politics, music -- anything at all.
THELATEST.com is looking for two business and finance savvy individuals looking for the startup experience in building a world class brand. Business Development and Finance duties will overlap and require constant collaboration as outlined below.
The Business Development and Finance Interns will explore, on our behalf, potential strategic partnerships with: prospective investors; crowd funding platforms; other websites; media companies; advertisers/corporate sponsors; celebrities; etc.
Since we don't yet have a site, you will have to be pretty smooth to get your foot in the door, but what we hope you can accomplish is to get a dialogue started so that when we do launch, we can slide right in and see what we can do.
PLEASE NOTE: This idea is still in the early stages and we are pre-launch, pre-funding, pre-just about everything. We do have a demo site and we also have programmers programming. We hope to launch by Summer 2015.
