TERN-UP teams up with inspiring entrepreneurs to offer unique internships in emerging market start-ups that have made it their mission to positively impact their communities, society and the environment.
With unprecedented access to technology, capital and expertise, social impact start-ups will be one of the most effective drivers of positive change in emerging markets for decades to come.
Tern Up believes in the power of these young entrepreneurs and their businesses in Africa and Asia
Whereas NGOs often depend on outside funding, local enterprises run on the strength of their business models making them more independent of donors or governments, thus creating a more sustainable and positive long-term effect.
Tern-Up focusses on local start-ups in Africa and Asia that combine a sustainable business model with the aim to positively impact their community, society and the environment.
When a new partner start-up has been identified, vetted and approved, we team up with the entrepreneurs to identify areas of need and to draw up internships for our international interns.
Our Mission. Our Vision
In times of borders being shut and walls going up, we at Tern-Up have made it our mission to break down barriers by connecting students, entrepreneurs and potential future entrepreneurs from all over the world with selected change-makers and their impact start-ups in emerging markets.
Your Internship. Your Impact
Working alongside our start-up entrepreneurs in their quest to positively affect their communities, you’ll be making an immediate impact both locally and beyond.
Your internship helps create international teams, adds valuable people power, brings unique complementary skills and offers fresh perspectives and ideas.
By helping local start-ups establish and grow their businesses, your internship boosts their impact and makes the world a better place.
Helping our interns grow professionally and personally, we at Tern-Up create mutually beneficial professional and personal relationships that often last well beyond our internships.
Through our internships Tern-Up aims at creating a worldwide network of like-minded individuals, companies, organizations and supporters contributing to social and environmental change in Africa, Asia and the West.
