Business Development & Strategy Internship (Berlin)

Social business startup: educating the poorest 1 billion children

At EIDU, we create a learning app for young children in poor areas where it’s hard to get the high-quality education that all children deserve. Our vision is to educate these children by building the next generation global edtech learning platform.


We are looking for a Business Development Intern (m/f/d) to support our CEO in Berlin as of now for 3-6 months and to help us build the strategy and operational excellence for growth at scale.

What we do and why

We believe that all children should be given the chance to reach their full intellectual potential. For that, they need a proper foundation early on. It is our mission to help them acquire foundational skills before they start school and then support them further. Our solution enables them to learn by themselves, at their own pace, on an app that works globally, even on the cheapest devices. This digital learning solution will be affordable to the global poor without any subsidies, making it a truly scalable solution.

We are currently testing our EIDU service in the toughest conditions: with more than 5,000 children in the largest urban informal settlements in Africa, located in Nairobi, Kenya. If you would like to know more, see the TEDx talk about EIDU at
