Role Overview:

The Venture Analyst to Venture Associate Program is a 12-month program designed to take you from the analytical skillset of an Analyst (Due Diligence+Deal Sourcing) to the relational skillset (Sourcing Co-Investors+Portfolio Management) of a Venture Associate, allowing you to build a diverse skillset coaching and mentoring hundreds of startups through our accelerators.

You will be responsible for developing, building, and supporting investor partner relationship development and management for the portfolio alongside a team of Associates, Partners, and other Analysts to both coach and guide your startup portfolio to successful funding, and eventual exits to bring returns to our investors and investor network partners.

This is an opportunity for an individual with strong intellectual capacity, analytical skills, a deep interest in investment management, exceptional business acumen, and a solid work ethic to drive the future growth of our portfolio of startups. Given the size of our accelerator, you’ll work with more startups in a month than most Analyst and Associates do in a year.

We’re looking for competitive, results-driven “team-players” – emphasis on team aspect because while this is an independently incentivized role, we live and die by the great work and sacrifices we all make together via our various programs to help our entrepreneurs grow and succeed – you’ll see some companies fail and some become unicorns, that’s just how it works.

The ideal candidate is an early-career self-starter with exceptional organizational skills, a strong desire to learn the ins and outs of venture capital, and the ability to anticipate the next steps in a variety of contexts. This individual should feel comfortable with ambiguity, be able to work autonomously and be energized by “greasing the wheels” to facilitate success.

This role is full-time only, with no contractors or part-time offers. OTE range is $45,000 to $80,000 based on experience with opportunity for incentive-based compensation, medical benefits, and yearly goal-based bonuses – there is also the opportunity for stock in our company and our portfolio of companies after your initial 90 day ramp-up period.

Culture Fit Requirements:

A compelling hunger and passion to achieve something great in life and change the world – remember that experience can be gained over time but your passion and drive are what will lead to success.

You must be willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done, able to be humble, trainable mentality, and able to learn on the job- we’re looking for people that can not only operate in the chaos of a startup but thrive in it and earn a place on our team. A previous and strong network in startups and the venture community is also a huge benefit and will make you stand out.

You must be hyper-organized, resourceful, and truly enjoys working in a team to achieve the vision- able to proactively reach out for guidance, offer and receive guidance from your fellow team members, and solve roadblocks on your own. Our companies will be relying on you and will live and die by your success in helping them or your failure in not giving it your all.
