Interns

Nothing short of rich (pun not intended!)

The energy at Lightbox is contagious. I looked forward to coming into work every day because there was never a dull moment and no two days were ever the same.

My 6 months at Lightbox have been nothing short of rich (pun not intended!)

Coming from a field that was seemingly unrelated to VC, I was nervous and perhaps even thought I was out of my depth while starting my internship; but despite my steep learning curve, that quickly changed. The biggest reason for which was the people. Every single person that I've worked or engaged with was so approachable, patient and ready-to-help/teach that no task, however big or small felt insurmountable. It was the perfect combination of being challenged yet supported - a first for me.

From the get go, I was thrown into the deep-end (of course with a life jacket i.e. Ankit) and I couldn't be more grateful because it was the best way to learn. Lightbox has been such an immersive experience, so much so that I actually felt part of a team that was not only investing in, but also building and growing some incredible companies. My time at Lightbox was filled with plenty of amazing conversations, shark-tank style pitches, thoroughly engaging and stimulating work, lots of mentorship, copious amounts of food, drinks and laughs! And the cherry on top - the office is just too damn pretty!

The energy at Lightbox is contagious. I looked forward to coming into work every day because there was never a dull moment and no two days were ever the same.

The past 6 months have been the most enriching, professionally and personally and I have learnt things that I will remember (and use) for a lifetime (sounds dramatic, but 100% true)

It was a privilege to be part of the LB team and to say the least - I'd do it all over again!
