The purpose of a digital marketing internship
Having an internship is highly valuable for both you and the Ricco Mortensen Foundation. The Foundation will benefit from your unique skills in order to maintain and run its business while gaining a fresh set of eyes with which to see things from a new perspective.
In essence, the Ricco Mortensen Foundation is a non-profit educational organisation dedicated to teaching as many entrepreneurs worldwide as possible how to succeed in becoming online entrepreneurs. The purpose is to give entrepreneurs a life full of freedom, inspiration and prosperity while doing meaningful work in the world and having fun in the process.
We would like to show you how a successful online business works, how it operates, and how to utilise this knowledge in your career, or for your own online business.

The expectations of you as an intern
You should either be in the process of or have a relevant education in marketing or entrepreneurship – or simply be self-taught and a bit of a nerd (in a good way) at what you do.
You are independent, curious and self-motivated and fluent in English in both speaking and writing. The internship is full-time, unpaid (you can receive a grant from the European Union) and the duration is 3 to 6 months.
Receive a grant for your stay abroad
The foundation participates in the European exchange programme Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs. It is a cross-border exchange programme which gives new entrepreneurs the chance to learn from experienced entrepreneurs running small businesses in other EU countries and other participating countries.
If you are an EU citizen you can receive a €780 monthly grant from the EU exchange program. You can receive the grant if you are a new entrepreneur, seriously planning to set up your own business or one who has already started a business within the last three years.
We will help you find a good and affordable accommodation in the city centre of Pafos in Cyprus. Monthly rentals including all utilities are available from €400 and up. You will have to pay the rent and expenses yourself.
