Intern @ Tot Squad
The intern will serve in a "Chief of Staff" type of role as a general problem solver and right-hand man/woman to the CEO while she proceeds through the Techstars Anywhere cohort (thru Spring 2020). Current projects include a rebranding, a spinout/restructuring, product design with UI/UX focus, consumer and provider market research, and managing an outsourced dev team to connect 2 off the shelf tech products.
Founder/CEO Jen Saxton is a serial entrepreneur who wrote the business plan while getting her MBA at Kellogg. She raised nearly $3M for Tot Squad before splitting the business into two parts: a baby gear cleaning service (currently being divested) and the new technology company that is about to start in Techstars.
While Tot Squad is headquartered in Los Angeles, the Techstars Anywhere program is virtual and interns may be located anywhere. The time commitment is 10-20 hours per week with a generally flexible schedule. Interns must be available for the majority of the time during Techstars's flagship part of the program: Mentor Madness (9:30 am to 1:30 pm PT on Feb 3-14 excluding Wednesdays and Weekends). Interns will have the option to, but are not required to, join Techstars in person from March 3-6 in Boulder and April 13-17 in NYC. Ideally, the intern is interested in the opportunity as part of their school program (without pay), but Tot Squad may be able to provide some compensation.
