Job description

Are you an ambitious student keen to dive deep into the world of sales and business development within the technology and VC sector?

Come be part of Edda’s six-month Sales and Business Development Internship in our lively Paris office. This role is not just about observation, but a chance to actively engage in and influence our strategic sales approaches.

You will play a direct role in identifying potential markets and VC funds, devising impactful outreach strategies, and enhancing our sales pipeline with innovative solutions.

What You Will Do:

Prospecting and Client Engagement:

  • Work alongside the sales team to pinpoint ideal VC funds and market segments.

  • Identify decision-makers within target organizations and devise effective engagement strategies.

CRM and Data Management:

  • Record client interactions meticulously in our CRM system.

  • Maintain an extensive client database with a focus on data accuracy.

Outbound Strategy and Campaign Execution:

  • Work with the sales team to create and execute active outbound plans.

  • Use LinkedIn Sales Navigator to efficiently connect with and involve potential customers.

Market Analysis:

  • Perform extensive market research to forecast industry trends.

  • Evaluate customer data to identify trends, establish audience groups, and enhance marketing strategies.

Preferred experience

You may be a fit for this role if you have:

  • Currently pursuing a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Business, Finance, or a related field.

  • Strong in research, analytical, and data management.

  • An excellent communicator with a keen eye for detail.

  • Fluent in English; proficiency in French, Spanish, German, or Arabic is advantageous.

  • Familiar with basic sales and marketing principles and CRM systems.


  • Previous internship experience in business development, lead generation, or sales, ideally within SaaS, startups, or B2B companies.

  • An understanding of the VC/PE industry.

  • Experience with market research tools and platforms.

  • Experience with email and LinkedIn Sales Navigator campaigns.

Supervision and Mentorship:

  • Under the mentorship of Charles, our Head of Sales, you will get one-on-one mentorship and personalized career support. This will help you achieve your personal and professional goals.

Here’s why you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity:

  • Join a pioneering technology company that’s changing the game in the venture capital industry.

  • Work in a dynamic, detail-oriented environment where everyone is passionate about building and refining processes.

  • Permanent role - if you enjoy working with us, there is the possibility of converting into a permanent employee, as we are always trying to stay with our best interns.

  • Flexibility - we offer a hybrid working environment, including home-based work and collaboration time at our local office in Paris.

Recruitment process

Begin with an initial screening call with our Talent Acquisition Manager.

  • Progress to a detailed case study presentation to our CRO, Tianming, and Charles, our Head of Sales.

  • Face-to-face meeting in our Paris office with our CEO and firsthand experience of our company culture.

Compensation and Benefits:

  • This is a paid internship. Specific compensation details will be provided upon application.

  • Additional benefits include travel allowances, meal tickets, and access to professional training sessions.
