Investments Intern at Lendahand

Lendahand is a small, fast-growing social fintech company. We run two online impact investing platforms that allow individuals and institutions to create impact in emerging markets while earning a decent financial return on investment.
Through our platforms, people can provide debt funding to non-bank financial institutions, fintechs and solartech companies in over 20 emerging countries such as Uganda, Mozambique, Georgia, Cambodia and Mexico.
We are part of the revolution that is reshaping the banking- and investment management landscape. Lendahand has found product/market fit and is in the scale up phase. Four years ago, we raised €10,000 per month, at the moment that is close to €2,000,000 per month. We expect to continue this steep growth curve, which translates into an expected €35 million in new investments in 2019!
With a European MiFID license (as an investment firm) in the pocket, we have launched a dedicated energy access investment platform in the UK and are about to launch in several other European countries.
The Lendahand team consists of +15 people. Some call themselves the experienced guys, and some team young gods (we leave it up to you to which group you think you belong). Together we form a dynamic and high achieving team that gets things done and is having fun while doing so.
We are part of the B Corp community and a member of NPM, the Dutch platform for inclusive finance.
What we look for:
The Impact Investment Team currently consists of 4 people and is in desperate need of a new team member as the portfolio is increasing rapidly.
What you will do as a member of the Impact Investment Team:
Lendahand is a small company, so don’t be surprised if your help is at times needed for corporate/financial strategy, capital raising, marketing (data analysis), etc.
IMPORTANT NOTE: this may lead to a full-time position.
