VC Associate @ Common Ocean in Remote

Common Ocean is a VC firm backed by individuals who have a track record of building successful companies. Our LP’s are operators and c-level executives at technology-first companies with access to various resources to help turbo-charge our portfolio companies. Our broad investment mandate allows us to evaluate early-stage companies within the Fintech, Proptech, Consumer Tech, and Enterprise Software industries. This is a unique opportunity to work on a small team at a young fund with ambitious goals.

This is not a typical internship. Interns will have responsibilities and autonomy akin to that of a full-time associate. You will play an integral role in Common Ocean’s investment process and have opportunities to interact with the entire investment team.

This summer, you will

  • Source and complete due diligence on potential investments
  • Complete one or more sector-specific deep dives and help map out exciting investment opportunities
  • Meet with entrepreneurs and evaluate their business plans and pitches
  • Draft investment memoranda and manage other investment-related internal functions
  • Work on projects for our portfolio companies

About you

  • In the process of getting or have a Master’s degree (MBA preferred)
  • At least two years of full-time, post-undergrad work experience
  • Have intellectual curiosity in startups and technology
  • Domain experience or interest in emerging tech, enterprise software, marketplaces, and/or fintech
  • Exceptional research skills, a strong understanding of finance and accounting
  • Strong written and communication skills
  • Be coachable and able to take direction while working autonomously
  • Able to stay productive while working remotely or commute to our New York office pending return to work-from-office conditions

The internship timeline is flexible, but ideally, you are available for at least three months between May through September. This is a paid internship that reflects the candidate’s level of experience. To apply, send an email with your resume attached to this email dropbox (and CC jack@commonocean.co) and include in the body of the email a sector that you are excited about and why, and two early-stage companies in that sector that interest you and why. The deadline to apply is February 26th.
