Intern Week 2020
It is the best time of the year
It is finally here. Intern Week 2020. For those who don’t know, the last Thursday of July is National Intern Day and at intern.club, we celebrate this whole week as Intern Week. In pre-covid times, this would have been meant bonfires, birthday parties, and trips to Vegas (this has happened before).
Instead, we are bringing in some very special guests to speak to our community this year.
Justine and Olivia Moore, affectionately referred to as the Venture Twins, are Investors at CRV, one of the nation's oldest venture funds, which counts breakout successes like Airtable, DoorDash, Bird, Dropbox, Udacity, and Patreon among others in its portfolio.
Justine and Olivia previously started Cardinal Ventures, one of the preeminent accelerators at Stanford, and worked at Goldman Sachs before getting into VC. They also founded Accelerated and the Liftoff List, which supports student entrepreneurs everywhere. RSVP to ask them something.
This year, for the very first time, we are organizing InternCon, which is now officially the largest ever virtual conference for interns, as we had our 3000th attendee register. If you still want a VIP ticket, follow us on @theinternclub.
