Business Development Intern (m/f/d)
Who we are
At Choco, we have the ambition to become one of the largest and most successful businesses of the next decade. Our mission is to reduce food waste on a global scale by redesigning the food industry's global value chain. The first step towards realizing this mission is our food-supply ordering platform connecting restaurants and suppliers and simplifying the way food is traded between them.
Founded in March 2018, we have already raised one of the largest series A of the last 5 years ($45M). We are backed by top VCs such as Bessemer Venture Partners and Atlantic Labs, as well as startup leaders and entrepreneurs who have built companies such as Google, Facebook, Uber, SoundCloud, DropBox, and Delivery Hero.
What you will do
Your main job will be to pitch our app to restaurant owners. In practice, you will have to do much more than that to ensure the launch of the market is successful. For this reason, you will also get to learn how to do Account Management, Customer Support, Business Development, Data Analytics, Recruiting and much more, setting you on a path to become a Generalist and a true entrepreneur.
- You will study the city you are responsible for, manage your own leads, create your own plan of action and have full ownership of your territory
- Be a killer at sales: hustle 24-7 to reach restaurant owners and convert them into engaged users
- Be a “natural-born” communicator: you have an innate talent for connecting with people and you quickly understand how to effectively communicate Choco’s value proposition to a very diverse audience of potential users.
- Find opportunities for improvement in all activities you do by being data-driven “to the bone”
- Learn quickly and do whatever it takes to make a market launch successful
