Internship

申し込みはこちら

Please e-mail us if you are interested in joining our community as an intern.

An opportunity to work closely with our promising startups will provide both an insight into startup's whole business processes as well as various practical experience that classrooms cannot offer. We believe that the best way to learn about business is to interact, work, and learn from motivated people through real work and problems. Our core priority is not only the success of our member ventures but also the valuable experience that interns shall get to become successful entrepreneurs in the future.

[ABOUT]
Although born in Japan, I was almost entirely educated abroad, finishing elementary school in India and high school in South Africa. After high school, I did a combination of backpacking and work for several years before deciding to start university. I am currently studying international business and economics at Sophia University.
私は日本生まれだが、教養はほとんど海外で身に付けました。小学校はインド、高校は南アフリカで教育を受けて卒業をしました。卒業後、大学に行く決意をする前に, 数年間海外旅行や仕事をしていました。現在、上智大学で国際ビジネスと経済学を勉強しています。

経済学、海外旅行、ポーカー、サーフィン、面白い食べ物を食べること、そして、起業家精神。

[HOW DO YOU KNOW VG]
A friend of mind from a circle at university was interning at VG and introduced me to an entrepreneurship seminar being taught by Jeff. Thinking the subject intriguing, I went and enjoyed it so much I asked if I could intern... and here I am.
大学のサークルの友人がVGでインターンをしていて、ジェフさんが教えられていた起業セミナーを紹介してくれました。

[WHY VG]
For the same reason I joined the entrepreneur seminar: because I have long wanted to start a business but have little idea on how to implement it. And because I like the drive and focus that entrepreneurs have.
私はずっと自分のビジネスを始めたいと思っていたが、それを実現する方法についてはほとんど知識がありませんでした。さらに、私は起業家が持っているモチベーションとドライブが好きからです。

[WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO ACHIEVE HERE]
My goal is to learn all I can on entrepreneurship, the ins and outs of starting a business and I want to be a part of a project that is real, that I can look back on with pride. Other than that, I also want to practice my Japanese, meet other entrepreneurs, learn about their successes and failures, and if all goes well, become one.
私の目標は、起業家精神についてできるだけ学び、誇りを持って振り返ることができ、リアルなプロジェクトの一部になることです。それ以外には、日本語の勉強と共にいろいろな起業家たちと交流を深めて成功談や失敗談を聞きたいです。最終目標としては、私自身も起業家になることを夢見ています。
