We Do What we love

Launching impactful global careers

From CEO and co-founder Dwight Wilson:

Our work at Collabriv is very personal.

We connect young professionals (from around the world) with entrepreneurs (in the San Francisco Bay Area currently) for internships and training, in part because I started my career by working overseas, for 4 years, and since then have been a entrepreneur and co-founder of 5 ventures in the Bay Area and Seattle.

Our work is very personal not just for me.

For young professionals from around the world, we offer you:

The chance to begin your careers by working abroad, getting trained in global collaboration and global leadership, and doing that in a multinational team of colleagues.

That’s a year (or more) that will set the course of your life.

For entrepreneurs in the San Francisco Bay Area we offer you:

The new perspectives, ideas, contacts, and access to global markets that an international intern (along with the colleagues in his or her multinational team) can bring to your venture.  In addition, there is the ease of hiring this intern because we at Collabriv do the initial screening, provide training around interviews if needed, and steer everyone away from the visa and sponsorship focus that can put the wrong emphasis on international internships.

As an entrepreneur, I know that hiring the right people at an early stage can indeed set the right course for your venture.

We invite you to join us and get started soon.
