Idealab – Prototype/New Ventures Group Internship Idealab creates and operates pioneering companies in a wide array of technology industries. Our companies are based on ideas that challenge the status quo, and change the way people think, live, and work. We commit to treat our employees, companies, partners, and communities with complete fairness, respect, and excellence. This role is within Idealab’s Prototype/New Ventures Group. This group is responsible for launching internally generated ideas for new companies. The group does this by vetting and validating the ideas with research, testing, and prototyping – and

then actually launching the company if it passes all those stages. The group also hears proposals from external entrepreneurs seeking an Idealab investment in their companies. Given the size of this group (small) and the speed-to-market that is desired (fast), this role will be extremely fastpaced and will require a tolerance for ambiguity and a hunger for figuring out new things. The Intern’s tasks will change frequently and will touch on business modeling, financial analysis, market research, competitive landscape analysis, user experience research, focus group testing, and everything else that goes into vetting a new business idea. The Intern will receive mentorship from Idealab's Executives-in-Residence, Prototyping team, and New Ventures managers. The ideal candidate is a multi-disciplinary thinker and hands-on. The Intern will be given goals but not handed an instruction manual, so “figuring it out” is key. Most of the startup ideas will be consumer Internet and mobile, so a love of all things digital is required. The Prototype/New Ventures Group Intern will assist a small team on the extremely early stages of new-company ideas. The Intern will assist in all aspects of this – everything from market research to business analysis to focus-group testing and product development. Applicants should have a good general knowledge of the consumer Internet and/or consumer mobile web. Superior written and oral communication skills, as well as knowledge of MS Office are necessary. Business, economics, finance, computer science, engineering, and multi-media majors are encouraged to apply. Details: Internship location is Pasadena, CA; Start date: January 9, 2012; Flexible Hours; 10-15 hours per week. Submit your resume and cover letter to Andres Castaneda, andres@idealab.com. • J.P.
