Social Entrepreneurship Forum (SE Forum) is a Swedish based non-profit organization, founded in 2004.  We are now looking for one or two interns for the spring of 2015, who will preferably be able to work full-time.

Since 2011 SE Forum has received funding from SIDA to implement an SE Outreach program, aiming to support social entrepreneurs who seek to address complex problems in developing countries. In 2014, SE Forum entered a partnership with J.P. Morgan to offer a capacity building program for entrepreneurial women who live and/or operate in the suburbs of Stockholm.

As an intern at SE Forum, you will be involved in the daily operations of SE Forum in general, and of the SE Outreach and SE Woman programs in particular. The internship will involve a broad spectrum of tasks, including project implementation, event coordination and administration as well as web-development and external communication.

  • Assist in the execution of the program activity SE Woman.
  • Identify and research potential funders as well as help prepare funding proposals to different organizations and/or corporations.
