CIC is looking for an energetic and hospitality-oriented Events Intern to join our team. This is an opportunity for someone with some experience and looking for more experience in events coordination! Join us in our mission to strengthen our community through innovative events in the City of Rotterdam.

CIC Rotterdam officially opened its doors in the spring of 2016 and manages approximately 8.000 m2 in the historic and iconic Groot Handelsgebouw in Rotterdam’s Central Business District. Downtown Rotterdam is just a 25 minute high-speed train ride from one of the world’s largest airports, Schiphol, and is a 40 minute train ride from Amsterdam. “Rotterdam is a rapidly growing startup hub so we’re in a city that is at the forefront of innovation cities across Europe. The CIC environment gives us a platform to perfect best practices in supporting startups. We’re constantly moving and on our feet, and we get to work to optimize systems and solve problems every day. It’s like you’re going through a business university because you’re getting a front-row seat to it all.” – Melissa Ablett, General Manager CIC Rotterdam

CIC’s mission is to improve the world by helping exceptional entrepreneurs innovate better and faster. We offer carefully curated working environments that combine private, secure offices alongside shared amenities in locations across Boston, Cambridge, Miami, Rotterdam, and St. Louis and are growing into other cities, within the US and abroad. We currently serve 1400+ startups, growth companies, and branches of larger organizations, representing for-profit, mission-driven, and non-profit sectors across a wide array of industries. We pride ourselves on displaying a high degree of care and accuracy in everything that we do, and we work to ensure that our clients thrive every day that they are in our space.
