The Firm

We’re looking for the crazy ones that are going to change the world and unlike many funds, we’re doubling down during COVID-19.

Newchip is a global remote startup accelerator and fund with a goal of providing world-changing early-stage startups with the tools, skills, and mentorship and networks necessary to successfully raise, build, and scale their businesses to eventual acquisition.

We’re a veteran founding team with decades of experience, numerous acquisitions under our belts, and we’re looking for the next members of our family and team.

We’ve helped fund over $100M into companies and are looking for entrepreneurial oriented individuals who are in it for the long-haul to truly help startups and create investment returns to our investors.

If you’re looking to make a difference, we’re here to provide the mentorship, leadership, and long-term growth potential to make that dream a reality.

Mission Statement: We deliver results and set the standard for entrepreneurs and investors everywhere.

We’re a 100% personal meritocracy so save time to see if you fit our core company values below:

  1. Personal Integrity – We take ownership for our responsibilities and do what we say we will do no matter what.
  2. Humble & Coachable – We have respect for authority and experience, but also a hunger for constant 360 degree feedback.
  3. Self Motivation – We first strive to learn, grow, and constantly improve ourselves so that we can contribute to the team and mission.
  4. Gritty Resolve – We face down all adversity, we take all criticism, and we get knocked down, but we always get back up.
  5. Passionately Ambitious – We enthusiastically pursue our work because accomplishing the team goal, equals meritocratic and personal success.

About Our Internships

Internships typically last 4-6 months, with the top interns offered roles upon completion. We accept interns who can devote at minimum 20 hours per week but prefer full-time. We are flexible with schedules and hire remotely and take intern classes year around. Our aim is to encourage entrepreneurship and buffer the ecosystem that supports it while teaching interns practical skills and real-world knowledge they can apply to full-time venture roles.

Our internship has two paths- general venture and financial analyst, both are and will be responsible for assisting in generating and reviewing dealsourcing ad applications, nurturing companies through the selection process, completing due diligence, reviewing our demo day startups for investment, and helping Newchip and it’s partners select companies for our investment portfolios.

Some interns are given the option based on their experience to work directly with our startup companies so the overall area of responsibility for this role is very wide and thus requires thorough knowledge and most importantly a passion to learn and be involved in various company processes from both a strategic and execution standpoint. To be successful in this role, you should have more than a basic knowledge of the startup scene, finance, and technology.
​Prior interns have spent time supporting portfolio companies by assisting with financial models, pitch presentations while also researching new opportunities and business development. This internship will propel your career opportunities forward by giving you exposure and real responsibility to make an impact on a growing team as well as prepare you for a venture associate role at our firm or others.

Note- that a video cover letter via vimeo or youtube is preferred over a paper cover letter in the application process.
