Sales & Partnerships Internship / Praktikum
Applicants need to be currently enrolled in the University and the internship needs to be mandatory (Pflichtpraktikum).
Starting date: From August or September
You want to help solve a problem that’s severely damaging our environment? You’re highly motivated, hardworking and creative and want to have significant impact in a small startup? Then this might be the perfect internship for you!
You’ll get the unique opportunity to help develop our sales and partnerships strategy through being hands-on in identifying our customers, partners and by helping us create a strategy from scratch. You’ll be working directly with the founder in a dynamic, fast-paced environment. Bring along your ideas, your passion for building relationships and a hands-on mentality to deliver our mission right from Berlin!
100 billion garments of clothing are produced every year, of which 90% end up in landfill and incineration. This produces millions of tonnes of CO2 emissions every year, with this number set to rise significantly to meet our clothing demands. At Kleiderly, we have invented a technology to recycle this waste into a new material, which can be turned into anything, from furniture, to suitcases, to headphones. The opportunities are endless to help reduce the environmental impact of fashion.
