At Project Everest Ventures we create socially beneficial, affordable, sustainable and effective products and services that are tailored to solving social issues in local communities. Undertaking an internship with Project Everest Ventures exposes you to the experience of building a social enterprise in a developing country from a grassroots level, applying your university skills to something aimed at creating genuine impact for real people. We are currently working across Malawi, Timor Leste, Fiji, and India on a range of different social venture projects, dependent upon the needs of the communities. Our ventures grow with each month of operation as new trekkers and leaders continue the work of previous teams, ensuring that a sustainable, long term impact is implemented.
As a trekker with Project Everest Ventures, you will live and work in a close-knit, multidisciplinary team to tackle a particular social venture project in country for at least a one month period. Your team will be collaborating and engaging with local communities through hands-on, education workshops, co-design sessions, face-to-face engagement, and the application of a range empathy-based design thinking methodologies. Throughout this process, you will be challenged to operate using lean processes and limited resources, to guarantee a proof-of-concept, a functional prototype, and/or facilitate the implementation of the solution within the community.
Don't worry though, as much as we love a challenge, you won't be thrown into the deep end just yet. As part of your preparation we will arm you with tools and skills in business, design thinking, leadership, teamwork and communication, and crisis management, all of which will be developed further in country. Your team leader and senior leaders will be facilitating your project's development as well as your own personal growth over your involvement with Project Everest Ventures prior to and within country.
If you are committed to creating social change, sustainable social enterprises and achieving determined sustainable development goals across the globe, then we want to hear from you. We are seeking capable, passionate, and committed people to join our team, with the potential for further leadership and business training. Be part of the social change and get involved.
