TCG is offering a portfolio-wide internship program for the summer of 2022. TCG and many of our portfolio companies are looking for talented undergraduate juniors, as well as MBA candidates between their first and second years. TCG is an equal opportunity employer and champions inclusivity, diversity, education, and access. We are looking to add team members who are champions of these core values. The program will run for a total of 10 weeks, from June 6th to August 12th, 2022. Given safety considerations during the current COVID pandemic, internships will take place remotely or hybrid-remotely.

TCG portfolio companies fall within the categories of consumer tech, media, commerce, sports, and wellness. The Summer Internship program is a 10-week, fully paid program. TCG portfolio companies are based in various cities, and internship opportunities will be fully remote or hybrid-remote. The Summer Strategy and Operations Analyst/Associate Intern will report into selected portfolio company leadership, and gain exposure to the inner workings of their business and learn what drives their success and growth.

In addition to owning hands-on strategy and operations projects, this Intern will be a part of a broader TCG internship curriculum that includes a speaker series, mentorships with direct portfolio company managers and TCG investors, broader career development, leadership presentations, and opportunities to forge meaningful relationships.
