At Volition Capital, we believe in building talent from within. Our internship program is the first step toward finding talent that will shape the future of our firm.

During your internship, not only will you gain valuable hands-on experience, but you’ll also have the opportunity to learn from seasoned professionals and develop a deep understanding of the growth equity industry. As you progress, you’ll have the chance to take on more responsibilities and contribute to meaningful projects, all while building a strong network of contacts and refining your skills.


During your internship at Volition, you will be given real-world responsibilities and projects. You can expect to be challenged and to learn new skills and techniques as you work alongside your mentor(s). You will also have regular check-ins with them to provide feedback and support. In addition, there will be opportunities for skill-building, networking, and professional development through training sessions and other events. Our goal is to provide you with a dynamic and meaningful internship experience that will help you build your skills, knowledge, and network, and to lay the foundation for a successful career.

    At Volition, we believe that you grow through the intentional implementation of your experiences. That’s why our interns are asked to execute on an independent capstone project during their 10-week internship. This project allows  you to apply the skills and knowledge you’ve acquired during your time with us, to a real-world scenario,  to influence how your colleagues and mentors think about a company, industry, or sector, and demonstrate to the team your ability to learn and execute on the role of analyst.


    1. You will work with your mentor(s) to define a topic/market that is aligned with your skills and interests, as well as, align nicely with the Volition investing strategy.
    2. Working independently, you will do a deep dive into your topic of choice to identify different companies and opportunities that fit the Volition investing model.
    3. Once identified, you will work with your mentor to conduct outreach and engage with the companies and their founders.
    4. At the end of your time with Volition, you will present your findings to the team. This is a great opportunity to showcase your talents and to demonstrate your ability to contribute to our business. The capstone project is an important part of your internship experience and will help you build your confidence and enhance your skills.

    Throughout the 10-week program, we invest in a variety of team building initiatives that help our interns build connections, develop trust, and work together more effectively. From team dinners and group outings, to regular opportunities for cross-departmental collaboration, our interns have many chances to bond and build relationships.

    Our feedback process provides everyone with an opportunity to receive constructive criticism and guidance from their colleagues, managers, and mentors, giving them a comprehensive view of their strengths and areas for improvement. This process is designed to be transparent, consistent, honest, and supportive, with a focus on helping everyone reach their full potential.
