Description

Startup Dope is a digital magazine that covers the stories of Early stage startups / Entrepreneurs ( Guys who've just started out with building their dream companies and need to get their story out).

Many of them overcome the odds to start something new, something they believe in.
We're here to help tell their stories and we hope you'd love to be part of the experience too.

What will you be doing in this Internship?
Well to begin with, Write content... A lot of content. You'd be required to bring in your narrative style and perspective to tell their story. Any story can sound great or boring by the way it's narrated (We firmly believe that).

If you think you can do justice to that and write stories that create an impact, You're welcome to Join the Party. :)

What will you learn?
1. Trends of Startups around the world.
2. Over time you'll start understanding what worked and what didn't for ideas
3. How to craft content that is insightful and impactful.
4. Good stories go viral, (Bad ones too for all the wrong reasons) you'll learn to make stories with kickass edits to make it interesting.
5. The 5 line rule we use to make content.

BONUS: We've realised that finding kickass journalists and content crafters who are passionate about what they do is a little tough. So we're trying to give back to the community by handpicking writers / journalists who are open to freelance / full time / part time employment, so Startups or other content related jobs can find you faster and vice versa.

Once you complete the internship to our satisfaction, you'll be listed on our Exclusive Content Crafter's page that will feature your work and your availability.
