EventerCamp Internships: digital and entrepreneurial boot camp for students and recent graduates

Written by Eventerprise · 4 min read >


Eventerprise
 is an early-stage SaaS platform that is transforming the world of events. As a startup, if there’s one thing we know, it’s that starting out is hard work! That’s why we understand the predicament of students and recent graduates trying to get started with their careers.We believe that the most challenging aspect of knowledge acquisition is its practical application, closely followed by finding the right environment to apply that knowledge. That’s why we have developed a proven track-record of building a world class digital business with the help of talented students and graduates from across the world. In return we offer a real-world learning experience in a pioneering environment that embraces agile methodologies.

Welcome to Eventerprise: the Global Events Platform



Our vision

The EventerCamp programme aims to develop students (Young Guns) and recent graduates (PostGrads) on both a personal and professional level, equipping them with the necessary digital, business management, and leadership skills to be successful in their chosen careers. Currently EventerCamp internships are available at our hub in Cape Town, South Africa, and on a remote basis in the USA.  

What makes EventerCamp different from other internships?

Most young people who participate in EventerCamp do so in order to fast-track their knowledge and skills in a real-world environment that offers the opportunity to contribute to go-to-market projects. They are assisted every step of the way by hands-on coaching from accomplished business leaders. In return for their enthusiasm and commitment over the duration of their internship period, EventerCamp Young Guns and PostGrads can expect personal, professional, leadership, and entrepreneurial growth not easily found elsewhere.It must also be noted that under South African legislation we are not permitted to pay international interns. We have instead made digital and entrepreneurial empowerment the focus of the Young Gun and PostGrad programmes. International students who would like to participate in an Eventerprise internship, but are short of funds, are often eligible for corporate, academic or non-profit sponsorship. This would need to be organised by the candidates themselves though.We are also doing our bit in this regard through our Africa’s Got Digital Talent campaign that promotes sponsorship for talented young African students who do not have the resources to attend an unpaid internship otherwise.Apply Now

EventerCamp alumni

“I was not just able to write content that related to my interests regarding socially responsible business and women in tech and VC, but was also granted full reign of creating and executing a corporate social responsibility project (South Africa’s Got Digital Talent), which I built from the ground-up with our CEO, Gotz, and with major help from many other members of the team.” –Lillian Gabreski (USA), Content Marketing PostGrad

“Popups have played a significant role in the latter part of my internship. I was supposed to create a whole new popup system, and so I did. It took a lot of meetings, many helping hands, and quite a few weeks to develop a system that worked. Although the system is still in its infancy I am happy to say that I have been part of the creation process.” – Clan Schuur (Netherlands), Graphic Design Young Gun

“During my 4 years of studying international business and management at the University of Applied Science in Utrecht, I haven’t learned nearly as much about different management styles, strategy formation, marketing, finance and various other aspects of business as I am learning at Eventerprise” – Justin Plagis (Netherlands), Investor Relations & Sales Young GunView Glassdoor Reviews
