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 interns are critical to the growth and operational success of Alpine and its portfolio companies. Interns in this program will receive exposure to various aspects of business development, including diligence of potential investments and portfolio company operations.
The primary responsibility of the Corporate Development Intern involves supporting Alpine’s and the portfolio’s operations and management teams. The Corporate Development Intern will find strategic acquisition
targets and business partnerships for Alpine portfolio companies, conduct market and industry research, participate in running diligence of additional acquisitions, assist with board meetings and financial reporting, and develop strategic recommendations for operational projects at Alpine and/or its portfolio companies.
The Corporate Development Internship is most appropriate for those who wish to learn about the management of a business from the perspective of a private equity firm, from running board meetings to executing on growth strategies. Individuals in this role most likely see themselves as future operational leaders or managers of companies.
