Shayp: Internship Business/Sales/Marketing

Business Development - Brussel | More than two weeks ago



Shayp designed a non-invasive and AI-driven solution to detect water leaks for professionals and consumers.

Who are we? 

Shayp won the Belfius Smart Belgium Award, the European Seal of Excellence and was recognised as one of the most promising global InsurTech startups at Zurich Innovation World Championship. Our customers are heavy water users, seeking for savings, ease of operations and the reduction of their environmental footprint. We address cities, facility management companies, institutions and insurance companies.

Our goal is simple:

Grow and conquer the market quickly. To do this, we need to have financial partners that will support us in this journey. We need to identify the investors that will bring the most added value for Shayp while being able to bring to the table the money needed to get us far enough during the next 5 years. As a financial management trainee, you’ll actively help the directors (CEO and CFO) in the acquisition of investors, in the preparation of the data-room and the process of the due diligence.

Have a look at what we do, how we do it and why we do it:

Are you a doer/changemaker?

Do you want to actively contribute to startup growth? Is learning through hands-on experience and coaching your thing? What about instantly saving millions of litres of distributed water?
