To mark International Women’s Day, H2 is delighted to announce the launch of the H2 Intern Program, specifically designed to support women who are interested in working in Fintech and or Venture Capital. Each year H2 will invite a number of candidates to participate in the Program from Australia or abroad to spend up to 20 weeks working with the H2 Team in its Sydney offices.

“Over the last few years we have had a number of terrific interns, male and female, from some of the world’s leading tertiary institutions. While we cannot offer places to all of the candidates that approach us, we would like to see more women in this industry and feel that focusing on female candidates is one way we can foster more gender equality in the local startup ecosystem.” Melissa Hurwitz, Head of Community, H2 Ventures
