Accion, serving the states of Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas, is an award-winning nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the tools entrepreneurs need to operate, grow or start their businesses. We increase access to business credit, make loans and provide training to help entrepreneurs realize their dreams and to help businesses thrive.
We are looking for a Business Development intern to work with our Colorado lending team in strengthening Accion’s brand in either the Fort Collins or the Colorado Springs Community. The Business Development Intern will support the work of Accion by actively engaging community organizations, referral partners, and clients. Interns will sharpen their networking and outreach skills, deepen their connections in the Fort Collins or Colorado Springs community, and will experience the passion and brilliance of small-business entrepreneurs and their impact on economic growth.
What we provide
You will learn about Accion’s values-based high performance organizational culture, as well as best practices for nonprofit management and mission impact. Although unpaid, you will gain valuable professional development experience, and may be eligible to earn credit towards your degree.
In your cover letter please specify if you are applying to the Ft. Collins or Colorado Springs Internship.
