Venture Development Internship | United Kingdom
London, United Kingdom
Bloomon is a successful e-commerce venture, disrupting the international flower industry. The flower sector generates over €50 billion in annual turnover but 99% of the sector still operates offline.
The Bloomon founder team consists of seasoned e-commerce experts (ex Rocket Internet) as well as strategy-consultants (The Boston Consulting Group), and has raised funding from renowned VCs as well as international entrepreneurs. The company has been covered in articles by over 50 national and international newspapers, journals and magazines.
From the centre of Amsterdam, Bloomon is changing the traditional flower industry and driving the industry’s shift from offline to online. After successful launches in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, the company has now launched in the UK. Therefore we are looking for a smart, ambitious and talented intern to scale our organisation internationally.
