Our mission is to increase transparency in the right places, showing off each tenant’s reliability while eliminating bias by removing demographical information from tenants’ profiles. Landlords find the best tenant possible, while tenants don’t have to spend hours searching for an apartment.

Job Description

 We are looking for a full stack developer, open to the idea of becoming our third and final co-founder. This should be a student who will be dedicated to the venture while also staying true to our mission and values.

We have proven demand through market research and developed a functional wireframe for the product. Our website developer will be tasked with building the front and back end of this platform as a minimum viable product (MVP) and eventually a fully functional website.

Job Requirements

·      Full stack development experience

·      Willing to learn about the real estate industry and our product’s implications

·      Willing to take part in entrepreneurship programs offered through Duke and Cornell

·      Some interest in business and entrepreneurship beyond just the technical aspect

·      Capable of developing products that are user-friendly and highly functional

Remote – Permanence Partners – Eldercare Real Estate and Healthcare Entrepreneurship Intern

Permanence Partners – Eldercare Real Estate and Healthcare Entrepreneurship Intern

If you are an entrepreneur at heart but don’t yet know your path to CEO, if you are interested in healthcare and creating a better aging experience, and if you are interested in private equity and real estate development, this internship may be of interest. Permanence Partners is a Search Fund dedicated to buying, building, and operating assisted living and memory care communities that bring meaning and security to the lives of our residents. Permanence Partners was founded in 2019 by Jonathan Schatz, Trinity ’07, Stanford Law School JD ’16, Stanford Graduate School of Business MBA ’16. Permanence Partners is a startup structured as a Search Fund, a special purpose private equity fund, dedicated to a single investment thesis and with the long-term goal of owning and operating one business in the senior housing sector. Permanence Partners will operate in three steps:

  • Identify a market need in senior housing
  • Develop and buy senior housing properties
  • Operate world-class senior housing communities where the stories of our residents’ lives are shared and written every day.

We seek interns who are above all else entrepreneurial. Entrepreneurial means that you have a bias towards action, you want to make an impact in the world, you don’t want to spend your life working for other people, and you are willing to fail if it means you fail in pursuit of your curiosity and your freedom.

This internship will be a deep dive into the dynamics of:

  • Search Fund Entrepreneurship (i.e. entrepreneurship through acquisition)
  • Healthcare – how to keep seniors safe and well, especially in a post-COVID world
  • Real Estate Development

Permanence Partners is a for-profit startup with a deep social mission – to create a better way of aging while building communities that build wealth for our investors and our employees. If you would like to be on the ground floor of this entrepreneurial journey and develop a toolkit to become a CEO in the near future, we look forward to meeting with you. This internship will report directly to the CEO. Please send resumes and cover letters to Jonathan.Schatz@permanencepartners.com. All backgrounds and majors are encouraged to apply. The role is intended for the summer but can be extended if desired.

Remote – White Paper Project

From Duke Alum Les Ottolenghi: Several of the F-500 companies we are consulting with have limited resources to develop Whitepapers for:

1.) the New IT operating models,
2.) new cybersecurity operating models and
3.) Digital Business Transformation Roadmaps including high-level business models?
Would there be an interest from students to develop – per our guidance – and author white papers (max 15-20pp) and an operating model (high level DCF estimates for new business lines) with a roadmap (again 15-20pp). We also have a request for a future of journalism whitepaper — “what does journalism with truth and trust look like in the 21st century — workable models, and a way to re-invent local journalism”

My estimate is 3-4 students to do all three projects or possibly a 5 with a good writer/editor.

Please email lottolenghi@me.com if you are interested!
