CAP Talent Matching Computer Science Students with London’s Tech Startups

What is CAP Talent?

An internship programme, developed by Capital Enterprise, to match Masters and Undergraduate Computer Science students with London’s tech startups.

The intern will create real value for the host startup, in turn providing a valuable environment for the student to apply their knowledge and skills.

The tech startups will include Capital Enterprise portfolio companies, such as those from the London Co-Investment Fund and AI Seed Fund, and those who have raised capital from Seed or Series A investment rounds.
