A) Investment Intern

Investment interns are an integral part of the deal teams at Alpine. We believe in giving interns ownership and responsibility early so that they can drive real impact and maximize their learning.

The primary responsibility of the Investment Intern involves assessing potential investment opportunities for Alpine’s fund. This entails proactively analyzing industries and individual companies, identifying key trends and risks and highlighting attractive areas for investment. As deal processes “go live,” the Investment Intern will play a critical role on the deal team in assisting with various components of the deal process, including on-site company visits and diligence meetings with business executives.

The investment internship is most appropriate for those who wish to learn about the deal process, from initial evaluation and negotiation, through due diligence, to completing the transaction. Individuals in this role most likely see themselves as future investing partners.


B) Corporate Development Intern

Corporate Development professionals are critical to the growth of Alpine’s portfolio companies. We believe in giving interns ownership and early responsibility so that they can drive real impact and maximize their learning.

Alpine’s portfolio companies grow primarily through
(1) acquisitions of other businesses in the same industry (“add-on acquisitions”) and (2) organic growth initiatives such as as adding new customers through increased sales and marketing. Interns in the Corporate Development program will receive exposure to a variety of workstreams that support these two growth vectors, including sourcing of new add-on acquisitions, the diligence of potential add-on acquisitions and strategic portfolio company operations.

The primary responsibilities of the Corporate Development Intern includes: finding and researching add-on acquisition targets for Alpine portfolio companies, conducting market and industry research, being part of the deal team that completes the diligence of an add-on acquisition, assisting with on-site board meetings and financial reporting, and getting involved in organic growth initiatives for Alpine’s portfolio companies.

If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
