digital and entrepreneurial
boot camp for students and recent graduates
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.
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.
The great news is that this career-defining experience is absolutely free, despite the fact that its results surpass those of many management seminars and courses that cost thousands of dollars. Feedback from previous interns who hail from top universities around the world only confirm the great value of an EventerCamp internship.
“Eventerprise is the first global company to be more than 50% powered by interns.”

“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

At Eventerprise we prefer to do the walk rather than the talk, but there are a few fundamental philosophies that we live by every day.
Talk is cheap, once the strategy is in place it’s time to roll up your sleeves and execute the plan.
#kind & assertive
We believe in open communication and treat each other with respect, but also hold each other accountable.
Where there’s a will, there’s always a way. The difference between success and failure is commitment to your goals and finding a way to them.
We don’t do busy being busy. Your activities should always be focused on driving the good ship Eventerprise forward.
Overcoming fear of failure is key to entrepreneurship. The faster you fail the quicker you learn and the quicker you learn the faster you get to the solution.
#keep educating yourself
Continuous, self-directed learning keeps us ahead of the curve and promotes personal growth.
We call our interns Young Guns as they are treated as full team members and held to the same high standards
Our office hours are 09:00 to 18:00 from Monday to Friday. We have our early birds and night owls who are at work at the crack of dawn and leave well after sundown but that’s because they love their job so much. The time flies by so quickly that most of us don’t even realize when it’s time to go home for the day.
Several of our EventerCamp Alumni have gone on to work at Eventerprise in a permanent position. Malikah is a permanent member of our design team and started out as a Young Gun. Laylah went from being a Young Gun to the Junior Team Lead for User Experience Design. Craig started, who is the Junior Finance and Operations Manager, and Khaya who is now one of our Digital Marketers both began their Eventerprise journey as Young Guns
Then there’s Chris, who did not one, but two internships before eventually becoming our US CFO.
In most instances, a degree in the required field is essential, supported by some relevant work experience. However, we will consider candidates who display the necessary skills through portfolio samples or projects they have worked on.
Eventerprise has partnered with various internship companies that assist students and graduates who would like to work at our offices in Cape Town, South Africa.
